hi, been to see the consultant although must admit seemed more like a junior !!! They have confirmed I have degenerative disc disease in two discs not just one ! they say i have denenerative disc disease in L4/L5 & L5/S1... but the nerve pain/loss of feeling & tingling & numbness & weakness I have in my leg they are saying is not connected to my disc disease. as mri doesnt show a pinched nerve via the diseased disc as expected. so now they cant treat my disc disease untill they know where the nerve pain is coming from & are referring to me to a nerve specialist cant remember what he called it. he said my symptoms dont tally with my mri & had to leave the room to ask someone else. So meanwhile im in agony & they cant/ wont do anything. & ive now got to wait god knows how long till i get that appointment through !!! And Im in totally agony after being examined yet again :(. They are now more concerned about where neve pain is coming from. They said they cant treat the disc pain untill they find where the nerve is trapped,as it could make things worse. Im so fed up. just dont know what to do xx
