Does anyone else have this? Most of my pain is in my left buttock and runs down the outside of my leg all the way down to my foot. My MRI's showed nothing that should be causing this pain. Just a transitional L5, small bulge and an annular tear at L4/L5.
I did 3 months of PT which didn't help. WCB discontinued my PT because I have plataued.
Today my Dr said that I have unidenntified chronic pain, and that all he can do for me is give me meds. He gave me a 3 month RX for Tridural and told me to come back when I get low.
I'm really upset that everyone is giving up on me, I'm only 28 years old. Trying to work and raise a 2 boys when I'm in constant pain is soooo hard.
Unfortunatley I'm in Canada and I can't call another Dr, specialist or PM, without a referal. I'm out of options.
Thanks for the chance to vent. It helps a lot to have this place.
