Can anyone help with a diagnosis before i think im going mad !
this is the story,
herniatedL5 S1 8 years ago,right sided sciatica progressing to left leg
6 years later finally took the microdiscetomy,with the caution I would still be visiting the pain clinic as I would have damage that could not be reversed,
3 months after op everything came back in right leg,nothing in left,plus scar tissue formed at 8 weeks
developed neck and arm pain which was diagnosed as another disk problem along with arthritis and spurs but nothing major
have had 12 facet joint injections over every year since for facet joint arthritis/pain relief
last year symtoms changed pain radiating into both sides of groin ,hips,lower back,and right leg having to pick it up to move it as its so painful to lift ,also legs going from underneath me with sharp groin pain
no more injections until surgeons look again,they re did mris and xrayed hips,letter says cant find anything surgical to answer cause of chronic pain ,or put it like this the surgeon said if you had a very bad hangover and we mri your brain we would find nothing but doesnt mean to say your not in pain !
last thing is neuroligical electrical tests which im dreading as ive had these before ,after i had surgery they suggested nerve damage coming from my spine in right leg,the next tests are all limbs
can anyone shed any light on this as i feel my pain is at its worst,and yet surgeons have written what they have,I know icw got the electricals to come yet but can anyone help these sytoms are real !
sorry for going on
