Last week I was diagnosed with arachnoiditis L3/4. I had a prior fusion, 2 myelograms, and too many other injections to count, so who knows what caused it. I have severe low back pain and sciatica down the outside of my left leg to my foot, and it never goes away. Currently taking morphine ER 45mg. 3x daily, and norco up to 3x daily for breakthrough pain. The meds don't always help as much as they should.
I'm not new to back pain, but I can't seem to do anything to get this arachnoiditis pain to subside. I'm pretty much confined to bed because walking is so painful, and I'm sure the inactivity isn't helping.
Is anyone else going through this? What have you tried? What works and what doesn't? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
