neverending lower back pain

Hi. I've posted with this problem before but I'm hoping for some more answers/suggestions. My lower back/buttock pain with leg weakness started ten weeks ago. Drs said that the dye used during a myelogram for my cervical spine irritated the nerves and caused this. I've had a toradol injection and have been on Mobic for 2 1/2 weeks. It is worse instead of better. Now I have shooting pains in two toes on my left foot. I've been walking and doing stretching exercises everyday. I've also been laying in the floor with my feet up on the couch a lot too. It isn't hurting when I first get up in the morning but starts as soon as I'm on my feet a while. Standing in one place is worse than walking but walking is hard because my legs get so weak. It feels like a lot of pressure or like having a band being tightened around my lower back and hips. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    First of all thanks for suffering injury to keep us safe. You are appreciated. Sorry that you're in such pain and I hope you can find some help. Good luck and God Bless.
