So I've been to so many doctors and have gotten so many tests for my nerve pain. For three years I've had terrible pain in lower back down to my feet. It's really hard for me to stand for long periods andit flares up very easily. I've been told I had sacroiliitis, then I was told DDD spinal stenosis and facet joint arthritis, and referred to a neurosurgeon. So I got a new MRI and the neurosurgeon says my spine looks great and that I have a stretched nerve injury. The EMG confirmed damage to the S1 nerve. Has anyone had this pain from stretched nerve? The doctor gave me no advice as to what to do and said it may or may not heal. I'm afraid to be more active and just don't know what to do.
