Hi All, I wrote on this site last year when I was having problems, then I spent 5 wks in hospital in the end just having pain relief as they said my bulging disc was going back in. I have still been suffering with pain
The last 2 wks it has been getting worse then this weekend the pain has become chronic again, I have woke this morning hardly can move I have a chronic burning pain all down my right leg I have been sick twice and feel really ill. I have take some painkillers but no relief I have foned up the pain clinic I was under and they said they dont think they can do any more for as the facet injections they gave me did not work and my doc has just given me more diazapan and diclophenic. I jsut dont know where to go from here any advise


  • Sorry to hear you're having pain. What about your Primary Dr? Let them know what's going on and set an appointment. They may need to order some test or try some meds. Best wishes. Charry
    DDD of lumbar spine with sciatica to left hip,leg and foot. L4-L5 posterior disc bulge with prominent facets, L5-S1 prominent facets with a posterior osteocartilaginous bar. Mild bilateral foraminal narrowing c-spine c4-c7 RN
  • Definitely sounds like you need a further work up, preferably a spine specialist. Did they every do flexion/extension x-rays of your spine? Keep us posted.

    Best wishes,

  • Well, in my humble opinion, if the facet injections didn't work then they need to reevaluate you and see what they can to do help with the facet problems. I know how painful that can be and injections are not the final solution to fixing facet pain.

    I would also suggest finding a fellowship-trained spine specialist to evaluate you and find a plan of action.

    Take care and keep us posted.
