I finally saw pain management 5-18 and had a steroid shot after falling in November, trying therapy and seeing my doctor several times.
I had the shot on that Monday, he said it was a herniated disc as this pain was in my lower back, now radiating down my left leg and to my foot, I found it difficult to walk and sit, which I have to do at work all day and file.
Well that Wednesday - 2 days after the injection my wheel broke on my chair at work which landed me on my butt on the floor.
I have not gotten a response from calling the doctor offices and am due today at 3 for another injection but after that Fall the pain is so so much more severe, I cannot stand a day without tears and frustration and I certainly cannot sleep over an hour without putting the compound cream on, tramadol is making me feel restless and I have tried melatonin.
I have not been in this kind of pain ever and its constant and never relieved. So hard to walk, sit, work, function, I cannot do laundry or barely walk my dog.
I do not know what to ask of this pain management doctor today?
