I want the endless cycle of it being goo then completely bad then getting better over a week to end and not reoccur.

Been to a few top ones and they just give it a rub, Suggest some stretches that dont work then im back in 2 weeks.

MRI shows everything ... even some things that you don't want to know ...

you need a specialist that can make sense of your back and the mri, to put 2 + 2 together ...

someone suggested a sports physician (eg who does Richie McCaw see when he "tweaks" his back/hamstring/ankle/insert body part)

You've seen some top sports physiotherapists, or sports physicians? They're not the same, sports physicians are doctors, usually GPs, with post-graduate specialisation in musculoskeletal medicine. From your description of their management it sounds like you've seen physios, rather than sports physicians.

FWIW, and I don't know if it applies to you, my doctor told me that my bad lower back was caused by being overweight.

After losing about 20kg, my bad back problems more or less went away (I must admit I was a bit surprised).

Ha, overweight and obesity are significant contributors to many peoples back and knee pains, it's a perenially unpopular aspect of the diagnosis with patients!

TimA your back issues are different to mine and I'd not recommend seeing anyone as I had originally indicated, until you have a medical diagnosis. My issues were acute but relatively short lasting, say 3-4 days at a time and always resolved themselves.

About 6 weeks into starting my current job I begun to get sore lower back.
Over the next year, this spread down my right side - semi pins and needles feeling

Doctors and specialists were not that helpful, until I found the right specialist and the right exercise
I need to stretch my thigh muscles regularly as everything is tightening up due to sitting down too much. My core also needs work and I could stand to loose some weight 

However, have been under control for over a year now

Hah,
Well im no way near overweight. Try like 80KG or something. I am 6"2 so maybe just being tall causes a strain more easily.

If Tim lost 20KG he could hide behind a bit of dental floss :)

Try the GP and stress that you need it sorted. Since you've got insurance it should be relatively straight forward to get it escalated to the right people.

Best of luck Tim. I hope you can get it sorted.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.
