Im having pain run down my buttocks/hip area to my inner thigh and to my calf and foot. The pain is a radiating, throbing, sharp, needles pain and is constant all day. If I walk throughout the house it makes it flare up even worse, I can take a pain medication and it still really doesnt go away. The doc does have me on gabapentin ( a nerve ending medication) and hasnt helped this week at all. I do have a EMG and a NCS scheduled for Friday m has anyone had a EMG or NCS? Im wondering if anyone has had this pain and what was the outcome. Ive been trying to do research and see if this is a form of nerve damage, Im 12 months after surgery. You can read an earlier post to see my issues with the surgery.
