Bulging discs in lumbar area

by Cheryl
(Iowa)

I slipped on a broken egg at a grocery store. My left leg went out in front of me and twisted. Immediately bruising and swelling started on my knee. Had an MRI and I have two bulging discs in my lumbar area.

The pain was unbearable from my hip to my leg, couldn't sleep, missed work, couldn't sit, was on muscle relaxers and pain meds for the first week and cant recall much of it. Had to sleep on the couch. Its been three months, the possibility of the pain returning and it has if I do something wrong, frightens me and has limited my movement and ability to care for my family. Not sure what to ask for pain and suffering.
