I have been diagnosed with multi level degenerative disc disease, spinal stenos, sciatica of the right side and bursitis of the right hip.The nerves are L1,L2,L3,L4,L5,S1,S2. This has been going on since April 09. I have had 2 epidural steroid injections in my lower lumbar, and a cortisone shot in my hip between the lumbar injections. I have had some relief, but when I increase my activity the pain returns. The pain runs down my buttock, front and back of leg then hits my foot and causes great swelling in the ankle and the top and side of foot. I have lost the feeling on the outside of my foot and often have cramps on the bottom of foot with burning. When the pain makes it down to the foot area I can not walk or drive. Dr's don't seem to know why the foot swells so much.
