I have 2 herniated discs and my, I'm sorry I can't remember all the correct names, but the bottom of my back, they said my nerves are like spaghetti abs can never be untangled. I've had lower back pain since I fell in 2008. I saw a doctor in 2011 who saw one herniated disc, then I herniated another in 2012. Now I am having pain in my middle back that feels like a knot that I could feel but can't actually feel from the outside. My neck also feels like a bone is out of place. The cost of the injections and nerve burning put us in debt and I haven't seen a pain management doctor in a year and a half. Is it possible that I have another issue that hasn't been discovered in my past MRI? Has anyone had herniated discs that caused a more severe problem after years of having them? Since hydrocodone can't be prescribed at my pcp I have been in muscle relaxers, the max dose of gabapentin that hardly works anymore and fiorcet that helps a little. I'm just wondering if there could be something more now that I haven't been checked for. I've only received lower back MRIs. Thank you for reading this and any help you can give.
