Hello, I've been in a lot of lower back and right leg pain since end of january after bending over to pick up something from floor.
I've had an MRI that says mild disc desiccation and concentric disc bulge at l4 l5 with no compression of nerve roots demonstrated.
I've seen a neurosurgeon. He sees no reason for concern by looking at MRI but does think I've injured a nerve.
I'm pretty concerned because I'm in a lot of pain and my right foot is all but useless. I have to swing my leg out to keep from tripping.
He sent me for an Epidural steroid injection a couple days ago and the pain is worse, but I was told to expect that. I'm scheduled for another in 2 weeks.
Right now I'm just in pain and scared. This has changed my whole life.
