My long story short is that I had lower back and right leg pain. I have a annular tear at L-5 casuing nerve damage in my right leg. I am 30yrs old.
Couple months ago I started having numbness in both hands when I raise my arm and when I lay down. I have headaches in the back of my head near my neck and chronic pain going up and down my neck. I also have sever shoulder pain in both shoulders that brings me to tears every night when it wakes me up.
I am current;y taking 2 15mg oxycodone and I am having a microdyscetomy on lower back on Friday. My surgeon seems to be brushing off my new pain with my upper extremities. I am not sure what to do with my new pain. I don't know if I can go another year of test, PT, Drug changes and pain due to my neck issues.
Anyone else have the same problem? I am so young and never been in a accident. I feel like I am falling apart and no one understands. My husband has been great and my 1 year old makes things a little tougher. I also work fulltime. I need pain relief and just don't know what to do anymore.
