I have been battling this leg pain for so many months, and now I am having numbness in my feet. I am getting so discouraged. I have had tests done, (MRI, Bone scan) and they can't seem to figure out what is wrong. I feel like a failure when each thing we try doesn't work. The MRI looks good, I have been told, the bone scan shows some fluid, but not remarkable, and they don't think it is a pinched nerve. We are going ahead with the facet injection, but there is a slim chance that will work. I know I sound negative, but I have been so positive we would figure this out, and nothing seems to help. My husband and I are putting off having another child until I have this leg situation under control, and I am just getting hopeless. I am looking for a new NS, and the good ones in town (who wants one with a so-so rep, right?) are booked two months out! The facet injection is on the 23rd, so that's a couple weeks more of pain and numbness, and I feel like I am just going through the motions, because I really don't believe that will help, and then on to the next thing, unless they give up and tell me it's in my head! Help!!! Sorry I'm rambling, this is just taking over my life. It's the first thing I think about in the morning, and the last thing at night, because it's always there...
Sorry everyone, for the whining, I have nowhere else to vent, no one I know understands.
