Hi I m Yagoda,
I m 43 years old and work in a high fashion retail industry. I m on my feet 9 hours a day.
I had 5 epidurals done 2 years ago. It helped but I never felt a 100%.
About 2 months ago my feet and legs stared to heart very badly, I had all the symptoms numbness, burning, unconditional bad pain, my feet felt cold and like they wore a sleep. I could n sleep and work.
I went to see Foot & Ankle Specialist. He did some injections to stop the pain, he told me that I m suffering from Metatasalgia, and had performed some tests. I was told to stay off from work for few day and then to fallow up.
On 04-09-09 I had returned to see Dr. He had treated me again to stop the pain performed more testing.
I come back again to see him on 04-24-09 again in pain, he told me about the results.
I m treated for Lumbosacral Radiculopathy Symptomatic Neuroma and that may required future surgery of my both feet.
On 04-30-09 I went back to see Dr. again. This time he had send me to see Physical Medicine. I was sending again for MRI for my spine and was diagnose that I have Lumber Radiculitis, Mild Disc Desication at L4 L5. Focal Annual Tear in right L4-L5 foraminal and extra foraminal region, which abuts the exiting right L4 nerve root.In 2 weeks I have had two epidural procedures done again.
Thank god, I m feeling better and maybe will be going back to work next week. I hope it will last?
But I would like to know? What to expect from this, will I be able to be like I was before that? Will I be able to ware a high hills shoe again?
