I'm actively seeing a PM doctor, he doesn't believe in giving injections everywhere I hurt but for some reason I don't feel he believes a lot of the pain I tell him. I have from c2-t1 bulging discs indenting into the spinal, pinched nerve in c-3-c4 in which I got and occipital nerve block for the left side 2 days ago. MY lumbar is noted with mild arthritis, which is not severe enough for treatment. Although he did give me a trial epidural in my back which caused more sharp pains and less achiness and stiffness.
My biggest concern next is my left leg, I have what i'll call mild swelling all the way down to my ankle, very noticeable above the knee and it's a achy feeling all the time, other than when the hip and butt pain kicks in and it shoots down my leg. I've told the doctor and i get the feeling he just doesn't want to be bothered with that. He just wants to focus on my neck for now. He says 'I'm not going to stick you all over your body like and accupucture like most doctors will, I'm just going to give you steroid injection where I think more of your pain is coming from". Now I do appreciate my doctor somewhat looking out for me, but why not investigate to find out, or at least tell me what can cause this type of problem.
So I'm here on this informative site, looking for answers from my new set of friendly peers with whom have experienced or is presently having some of the same issues to informatively give me insight on what could this be? where could it come from?
your help is greatly appreciated!
