Anyone out there that can give me advice/help on the double crush injury or as I like to say my triple threat from hell. Piriformis Syndrome (Left), SI joint disfunction (left), Spinal stenosis and herniated (3) disks with nerve impengment at L3 and S1.
I guess that's 4, I sort just group the back issues as one. Months of pain, morphine, doctors, and therapy. UGH! Getting nowhere. Any surgery is not an option right now- the NS is taking the wait and see approach and I am at the mercy of the VA system so I have no choice.
I have had 3 ESI's with about 6-8 weeks relief each, PT, KT, steroids, NSAIDS, opiates, I have a stimulator that I use total of 3.5 hrs a day, exercises, anti-depressants and nerve pain meds.
Suggestions? Do the SI belts really help?
Thanks in advance
