I have a question for members who have been diagnosed with nerve damage. Neurologist says that could be my problem since I still have the same pain in my leg 9 months after L4 L5 fusion. When I sit down the pain lessens and if I lay down it pretty much goes away. Wouldn't nerve damage cause pain to be there all the time? Also can anyone comment on the idea that nerves get a memory of pain and don't let go of it. Its like they have been reprogrammed. This was another possibility he mentioned.
