I'm hoping somebody can shed some light on my back for me as the docs are quite happy pumping me full of drugs and telling me nothing, I'm starting to feel like a mushroom, kept in the dark and fed s*** every now and again.
Anyway, I had a lumber puncture 12 month ago and suffered horrendous back pain ever since, the docs put me on gabopentin , dehydtacodiene, and Duluxatine which worked, they have now taken me off gabo and Duluxatine for reasons only known to themselves and gave me a epidural 3-4 wks ago which has had no effect what so ever. This was suggested by a pain management doc who carried out the op and stopped the meds. He told me from my symptoms that when they did the lp they had hit a nerve which comes as no suprise really given the radiating pain from my lower back, groin and right leg. I'm now stuck in limbo waiting for another appointment, does anyone know the next step or potential solution to my pain? 12 months 6 of which I've been off work really is taking the Mick especially as I haven't taken a step forward at all, if anything gone backwards with the amount of pain being caused.
