It has been four months since my condition began and has intensified. I was referred to an Orthopedic Specialist. Other than getting an x-ray of my hips and MRI that led to a steroid injection (which didn't work) it was a waste of time not to mention the Dr. had NO beside manner, a veterinarian would have been more compassionate. There is a narrowing in the lower vertebrae causing inflammation and one would think in the 21st century the medical field can perform transplants, etc., can't help those of us who deal with Sciatica.
My tailbone can be very painful followed by numbness in my genital area (now for two months) and horrible nerve pain radiating down my legs to my toes. Ouch!
I have come to the conclusion after doing a lot reading, this is very likely a lifetime problem that cannot be fixed. At first I thought, can't live like this, it has affected my mental and physical being, a feeling of hopelessness.
Nights are the absolute worst and I dread them as I know what I'm in for. It took me three hours after retiring last night, getting up and down walking, walking, walking, waiting for my leg to stop drawing up from spasms over a hundred times in those three hours. I'm paying for it this morning, my leg and foot is weak and ever so sore.
Trying different things for pain, CBD oil and essential oil combinations for sore calf.
Any thoughts are appreciated as it seems we're on our own to figure out how to have a better quality of life.
