About 2 years agoe during my pregnancy I started having shooting pain go down my leg and whenever I crossed my legs my right foot would go numb. I was told it was siactca (sp). I will summarize as best as possible. I have had 2 MRI, Cat Scan, Bone Scan, 2 X-Rays and 2 EMG's in the past 8 months. I have fallen down the steps 5 times since January. I am in extreme amounts of pain all day and everyday. I have been told I have a annular tear right next to my nerve and I have nerve damage and weekness in my right leg. I have a 10 month old also. I guess my question is, does anyone else have this and is it painful to you??? I feel like I am going crazy. The meds help a little but only brigns my pain down to a 5 if I am lucky. I am going to have a discosecomy(sp) in October. Where is everyone elses pain?
