I am suffering bad buttock pain both sides!! It really hurts to sit down and is getting worse.I have an Lumbar MRI saying I have bilateral facet dengerantion, with a cyst of the exit Foramen of L5/S1 whic is reported to be "not obvioulsy compressing the nerves relating to the posterior joint" It doesnt hurt when I lie down!! (Like the MRI) I did get really horrible electric pain on both heels for 10 months when I walk, but now I have MBT boots its all gone to my left buttock and sometime the right and sitting is very bad. Does anyone have any advice on what I could do??
I have just had a 2 level ADR on my neck C5/6C6/7 and it was successful in terms of placement and motion but I have similar pain remaining. Surgeon wont look at lumbar issues right now wants it all to settle after the Op . Also all the meds post op have masked the problem that was there before and now on the bottom half. Any ideas on how I should pursue a solution?? Maz x
