I went to my surgeon with all my tests and my MRI today.
To my surprise he told me that I had Mild disc bulges and
arthritus which he said wasen't uncommon. I asked why I am
I so much pain and he said he had no idas........
He said I would need to go back to my pain management doc
and maybe try a lidoderm patch and a stronger pain med
along with the nerve and muscle pain meds I take. He also
said he would refer me to a nerve doc, but he had said my
nerve test was alright enough to say I have no back
He commented about a pych doc to see sometimes to help
with meds if pain is so great... I thought great he thinks
its all in my mind. I can tell by touch exactly where it is
the pain on my back L-5 and L-6 and I have numbness on bottom of feet. Also tingly feeling on feet. I have sharp
pain that shoots down bottom and back on legs when it wants. I know its there not in head.
I had sharp pain catch me off guard on Thanksgiving and I
fell. I am so upset. I was a very happy mom and wife. I
worked alot. Now I can't even drive rigvht now. I don't
feel like much and my poor daughter is 13 and watching
me. I really am losing hope fast. Any help or thought I
would love to hear. I feel stupid but am open for anything
and today was horrible.... Thank you
