I have leg pain for 6 years now. It's on the outside of my leg and it's the lower leg and foot that is most severe. I have had sevral negative MRI's, a venous doppler and 2 EMG's. All were good but the radioligist and my family doc still believed I had a pinched nerve and it just wasn't showing up on the MRI.
On Friday I had an epidural steroid injection and for now I seem to be pain free.
So does that mean it was definitely from the nerve?
How common is it to have a problem with a nerve and it not show on MRI?
I know this shot won't last forever but for now I'm happy and relieved.
