I had severe sciatica. After pregnancy, pain went on for months. I was suprised when they said L4 L5 are 5mm apart.My back felt fine. Therapist said i was on a fine line any further is only surgery. After epidural man i felt great it calmed the nerves so much. I didnt even realize how much pain i was in till it was gone. So my insurance was termin in Nov for stupid county issue i took the cut to keep my 1yr old baby covered.10 wks ago Bam lower back is out. Floored me. No meds. Been pushing hard. I dont even feel the sciatica barely a slight trace. After a shopping trip 2 days ago. i literally was laying on my side and feeling my lower rt back swell up it was wrapping aroun.d my waist into my pelvic area like pressure and tingling. Like i couldnt breathe at times.When stood up cupped my hand right around it.Wanted to go to er all day. Was fighting it scared of a bill that could ruin my family. After bath at night the swelling ? Bulge? idk moved across whole lower spine. Had sister look at it tell me what she saw. she gasped left room said be right back. I knew it was bad. Went to e.r. i was honest right away about having taken a pill that i got from someone. A half a pill at that didnt even work. Delada ?? said Equiv to morphine. I had them for wks broke down yesterday took a half, didnt work took half musc relax. Took my old Rx bottles to e.r ready topay cash expecting same treatment i had before morphine injections. 1 to 2 3 as many as it takes till u calm down. Told the overworked triage teenager that i got it from sum girl she scolded me wouldnt look listen do anything. Get this PLEASE PLEASE Respond She never once asked me what my pain level was, scooted me out with a scowl and said i aint gonna lie to ya... I cried like a baby my pain level was 10++++ She assumed me for some junky idk what kind, pills streetdrugs, akready portrayed me that way when i finally saw dr first ? is about needles drug use recreational drugs im like what im trying to explain the whole thing this bulge in my back she says that my back is fine its not an emergency situation she thinks that im experiencing the same pain ive had for past 10 wks. Really Did that happen. Wouldnt answer any ?'s. Finally caught her one more time said i dont think u understand this thing in my back just got here today. She said ya its inflammed for someone but unless u are peeing or pooping or go completely numb. Im ok But i need mri and spine specialist. Ive had body aches and its like little tingles thruout my body. I feel like my face is warm my skin is warm. Easily distracted cant focus. Its like its too much for my brain. I had anxiety heart palp. Its like yesterday was a complete panic attack. That dr never asked my pain level or even listened to my heart. she thought i was a drug addict i think either that or shes was having an awful day.Ive had panic attacks before i was terrifed that i needed emerg surg.Do u think that the epidural might have messed me up there cuz my back never hurt ever. could i have ruined my back being to reckless. The fact that my baby is a huge baby i have to lift her thats 30lbs i have no choice. Im so sad i cant snap out of it.I felt so good with epidural but dang thats obvious temp fix i would have to pay cash. shuld i would u for couple months to get insurance. Is that a bad idea. She gave me vics. make me vomit. How can i possibly care for my baby. Im freakn out is this a flare up. Is this a symptom. am i gonna be in this much pain forever. i still havent taken the vics since last night. I guess part of me the fighter since this is all new symptoms i have to be sober to feel how bad it really is, so i no what im really dealing with. Its brutal and mentally im wiped thanks for listening.
