I am new to your forum. I have bulging disc in c2 & c3 and lower lumber discs. I also have rhuemetoid arthritis wrapped around my spine. Recently I was moved to a new pain management doctor who after 2 visits, decided i needed an RFA on both sides of my neck and lower back. The right side of my neck went fine & the pain subsided after a month. However, the left side is still in horrible pain and its already been 3 months. I have complained to the doctor's PA (I have never seen the doctor again). The PA has never physically examined my neck, she has just thrown more meds at me. And they have not worked, besides the fact that I thought this procedure was to help get me get off the meds, not add more to the list. And not only is my neck in pain but I'm having horrible migraines. Now to top it off, my left foot has starting hurting so bad that I can't bear weight on it. I went to a poditrist, my foot is in a boot and i need a medical knee scooter but my insurance company won't pay for it so I am looking to buy a used one, but cannot find one. Did I mention I'm on disabiity? I know this isn't the worst sob story but I just wish I coud find answers (and a scooter). Thanks for letting me vent. DP
