My name is Kimberly
I have been recently diagnosed with chronic sciatica pain It started Oct. 26th, 2015. Now i have had on and off lower back pain / sciatica pain for years. Until now its been acute. I have had physical therapy, Xray's that showed degeneration in my lower spine at L4-L5 close to the sciatica area, I have had an Epidural Steroid Injection (which did help with the area of pain but did not take all of it away). I am currently on Anti inflammatory and muscle relaxer. The last time i was at my doctors I tried to explain that the medications i'm currently on are not helping with the pain. I am not scheduled for another Epidural Steroid Injection till January 14th 2016. I'm in a small town in Alabama all the medicaid doctors here refused to even see me because i said i wanted pain management so i feel stuck with my current doctor. I'm unsure what to do any of the physical therapy i tried makes me hurt worse. I can only lay on my left side, i can barely sit. I feel alone, i am already depressed, i feel like no one wants to help me. I don'[t feel its unreasonable to want to feel comfortable. I don't even know who to complain to about this. I understand beyond what i'm taking is addictive and some people abuse it but what about someone who just wants to be comfortable
Any advice out there?? Is there anyone i can complain to about this i do not feel i am getting the care i need.
