I have worked as a paramedic for 20 years, Over the past 2 to three years I have begun to limp, my left leg seems longer than the right, and a lot of pain in left hip and left lower back. I have been diagnosed with 4 minor bulging disks in my lumbar region and went through 8 weeks of PT with no relief. The Doctor I saw at the time said this was just normal aging for a 46 year old female and nothing to be concerned with. The pain keeps me awake, and occassionally the left leg gives way and I fall. I have had several injuries over 20 years on the ambulance, please help me I'm so tired of limping, not able to stand straight, and the pain.
