I have degenerative disk disease and allot of nerve pain through out my body. My feet feel like they are frozen. I have a shooting pain from my left bicept to my left pec. I have a shooting pain I believe might be sciatica, in my tailbone which travels around my right hip and down my right leg to my knee. All these nerve issues have been blaimed on disk condition and I've been told by the head of Internal medicine at the local University, that MRIS and XRAYS don't show pinched nerves.
Can someone please tell me if this is true. I have all this pain and my Dr.'s reply is always, " your disease must be spreading and it causes pinched nerves, but she claims there's no way to see the nerves.
PLEASE HELP ME!!!
I'm so tired of this continual dismissal of my pain!! I can't sleep or function normally.
