Hi, I am a new member and wanted to give my history to see if anyone else is going thru something similar. 4 years ago I was at a water aerobics class and got out of the pool and slipped and fell flat on my back. Ended up in ER and every disc in lumbar was bulging from fall. Then it all went into spinal stenosis and have had 4 epidurals that did nothing,trigger point injections that did nothing. Nerve ablivation that did nothing. Countless physical therapy. Have had 12 laminectomys in 2 years time. Have had 4 back surgeries and now facing a 5 th one. Can't take Cybalta or more then one 300 mg. gabapenten also take baclofen and robaxin for severe muscle spasms. Now I am getting muscle knots the size of large lemons in pirafrmis muscle. Have no core strength and one leg is a inch shorter then other from this. I can tolerate opiate pain medicine.Has anyone gone thru anything similar and what was your out come?
Please do not use abbreviated text talk!!
