Cathie's been having back pain along with some numbness in her legs for the past five months. Unlike me, Cathie doesn't complain and she doesn't take pain meds. She went to a chiropractor for a bit and then to physical therapy without any real improvement. Finally both recommended that she get an MRI done to get a better idea of what was going on. It turns out that she has a tear in her disc between l5 and s1. They've recommended that she continue physical therapy and that she will hopefully see improvement in the next 3 months.
