This is my first post here. I have been dealing with back pain now in some form for over 10 years now. in 2005, I had a Laminectomy at L5-S1, In 2014 I had a Microdiscectomy at L4-L5. In between, I have had injections of all kinds, rysotomys and July of 2015 had a neuro stimulator implant put in to try to control the pain. I still get numbness and tingling in my right leg and the pain is still so out of control, it almost knocks me off my feet! My right toe sometimes drags and my leg sometimes gives out from under me. I have had an EMG to check for nerve damage, but it shows negative. The problem is, I now have two surgeons trying to tell me there is nothing wrong with me. When I went over the most recent MRI with the doctor that did the Stimulator implant and told him what the surgeons said, his comment was "are they looking at the same MRI as I am?" He agrees that there is something wrong. Problem now is with the stimulator implanted, I can NOT have a new MRI unless I go through surgery to have the stimulator removed. I don't know where to go from here. The pain and loss of feeling in my leg and back is at the point of being unbearable. Has anyone delt with anything like this before? I'd love to know how others had this resolved. I can NOT be in pain like this any more. Any advise would be welcomed and very much appreciated.
