I've had it for 5 years.
I've had 2 surgeries, one on my L5,.and recently on the L4. My discs didnt just bulge but massively impinge on my ability to walk.
I don't honestly believe that there's relief or help for me. Physio and better sleep all help me be an over all healthier person. This leg really hurts though. I've just become extremely tolerant. I say this but find my jaw hinged together or my neck is nonexistent from my shoulder's raised....lately I've also started getting a numb face in responses to the stressors.
Should I just try Gabapentin and Effexor? I've tried Cymbalta but it's like cannabis for me... overall relaxing but doesn't take away my from my leg feeling like it's in an animal trap. Lyrica did nothing for 6 months but make me gain weight and feel so groggy.
The pain clinics I'm going to prescribe Cannabis and behaviour therapy. I honestly just want to walk and stop feeling like a quarter of my body is on fire. I suppose I should be grateful the spasticity didn't return....that was only three years to leave.
I don't even cry anymore it's become my life. The crying doesn't help. Sawing off my leg would.
