Hi all, new to the group here. I have read a ton on here and decided to post today. I had a L4/L5 & L5/S1 laminotomy and mini discectomy in July this year. I have had no relief from the surgery. I have had 2 MRIs, X-rays, shots, and a myelogram. I have a EMG appt. for December 1st. My Neuro says she belives that I have chronic nerve pain syndrom from how bad my herniations were and waiting a month to have surgery. I am now dealing with the leg pain and lower back pain that never goes away. I am taking flexeril and percocet 5/325 for meds. I have tried lyrica, gabapentin, and Amitriptyline. I am laying here in bed and can't seem to get ride of the pain enough to get it off my mind. Called my dr she is out of town this week. I feel like this is me and its in my head. I am 31 years old and a health person til I slipped and fell. I thought my mind was going good by now I am starting to get depressed. I feel that I am a child my boyfriend is having to take care of. I can't do much of anything anymore. Sorry I had to vent today has been my breaking point.
