This all started on Feb,17th,2011 I saw my normal doctor and he had me have a xray done ..it came back with spondylolisthesis grade 2 on L5 on S1...then he had me do a MRI which came back as grade 1 (1/4) spondy on L5-S1( anone know why the MRI says grade 1 and the x-ray said grade 2?) ...degenerative disk disease L4-5 and L5-S1..also Moderate neural foaminal stenosis L5 level bilaterally...I still have no idea what that is but the dr's have said it's the most pressing issue right now..anyone know what it means?? I was referred to the pain management where they did 3 epidural steroid shots..they didnt touch my pain or help in any form..I just got done with the second set of 3 shots which was the selective nerve root blocks...they do help but the day after i have this throbbing and burning in my lower back and today I have actually been feelin like a hot poker was inserted quickly then the burning pain started and hasnt left me yet..it also comes with dizzyness...it's worrying me. The pain management dr. told me yesterday that he was sending me to see a surgeon..I am worried. The pain is never gone..it's my left side,throbbin an burning in my lower back all across..down my left buttock like hot lightening bolts and my left leg down to my toes get very weak..I have fallen several times because it just goes numb...I am 33 years old..and my normal dr. will not let me work anymore. Anyone have advice or information they would mind sharing with me? Thank you.
