Well I am 31 and I've had several injections in my spine and they never worked. I've had a decompression, herniated disk removed and then several more injections and then had a L4-L5 fusion done. I used to walk fine, had shooting pains and pin needles down both legs and extreme pain. I've been threw extreme burning in my groin and more pain. After my fusion till this day I now use a cane because my left leg cannot maintain my full body weight without it buckleing. I have shooting pain and needle pain down my left leg, pain everyday on and off and can't lift anything around 30 to 40 Lbs. I also have numbness in my toes and foot. Sometimes when walking my leg pops forward. I can't walk very far for long times without extreme pain and having to sit down. I have told my spine doctor everything and he always looks and talks to me like I am making this up. He ses stuff like well lets see how you are doing in 6months well its been almost a year and he tells me lets try to get rid of the cane hahaha (have you been listening)I can't walk with out it. I know I am young and I would give anything to get function of my leg back but why do some doctors make you feel so stupid? I can't get rid of my pain, sometimes I even use those scooters at the stores due to bad days. I have try to get a job and been threw many interviews people look at me like I am a liability. Is there anything that will help me?
