Hi to all. I am new her but been reading topics occasionally. I have had pain in Rt. buttock for two years next month. I was on my daily run of 3 miles and a gorgeous spring day when i felt a pop in my back, hip, not sure exactly. I have been in pretty severe , burning pain since then. Multiple injections , MRI showed sl. bulging l-3, l-4, seen 4-5 different MD'sI I had a PM that later I found out was lousy lots of meds, injections, and still no diagnosis. I have a new PM that is a 2 hour drive away we are a rural state, mostly. So she has done diagnostic facet inj., epidural inj, SI joint inj. all negative. Tomorrow i am having a discogram, that they said is painful to see if I have some kind of tear. Right now I am scared, in pain but on pain meds oxyc. 40, and oxycod., My rt. butt cheek burns all the time and has for 2 years. All I want is a diagnosis I am 50 and was in good health.running going to gym etc. I would appreciate any encouraging words I have birthed eight children all without pain meds. or epidurals so i know I can do acute pain. But this two year old chronic pain is becoming more than I can deal with. Please help.
