Help: New Pain..No response from Dr

AnonymousUserAAnonymousUser Posts: 49,578
Hi all,

So see my history below. I am hanging out waiting for my procedures. However, yesterday I woke up with sciatica in my right leg...I have never ever had this in the last 5 years of having back problems. I didn't do anything this weekend that would have caused it. It is mostly in my calf and is very crampy but at times is down the whole leg and in the butt. I can't believe this. So I called my Dr since I am traveling and in SF (and the pain started before I traveled FYI) but live in NJ and left him a message figuring he would call if I should be worried. No call...but I am still worried and it really hurts.




  • Angela , so sorry to hear about the new pain. Call again sweetie....make sure they know that you are indeed hurting and worried. The best of luck to you and please keep us posted as to what you find out and how you are doing. Take care...Miki
  • Hi Angela,
    I would def. keep trying to call your dr. back. I had a problem about a year ago with my dr. not receiving the messages I was leaving. Due to poor communication, and laziness of his staff he had no idea I was even trying to get ahold of him. I talked to him about the problem when I had an appointment and he gave me a direct line to contact him through the nurses. Might be something worth checking out. :? How is your pain? Any better?
