Hello, SO 35 years old, Had a microdisctemy in November 2014. All was well until a injury months later. For the past 10 months i suffered from horrible nerve pain on the outer side of my left foot, entire left side of left foot. It is always inflamed, swollen, or sharp pains. I have pain on the left side of my left foot everyday all day and night. Also get burning nerve pain in calf off and on. Has anyone ever had various pains on the left side of their left foot? Its suppose to be the main area of the S1 nerve in your foot but my surgeons and docs have never heard of it. I am 4 weeks post L5/S1 fusion and it is no better, almost worse at this point. Anyone know anyone with this pain before? Ever go away?
