Hello everyone :H . My name is Heidi, and I have posted a few times here and there. I am just wondering if those of you that had/have a herniated disk in your back have severe leg pain? I have this problem in BOTH of my legs. I get this pain all the way down from my hips to my feet.
I also have back pain always on the left side. I got hurt at work 2 years ago, and have tried everything there is to try to get better. My last resort was the IDET, and it didn't work
. I am in the process of trying to get a new mri to see a neurosergon(my mri is 2 years old, and they need a new one).
I am dealing with workmens comp with this. The pain is just getting worse, I really didn't want surgery, but I just cant stand feeling this way anymore. I have tried everything that there is to try without surgery. What does this leg pain mean? Why on both sides? I am asking because I havent been able to see a surgeon yet.
I am in the process now. There are days that my legs are so weak from the pain that I feel like they are going to give out :''( . So, I am wondering from anyones experience what they think, and is there hope for me? I can't take the narcotics a lot of the time because they knock me for the wind. I do use lidocane patches (they only stay stuck to me for 2-3 hours), tramadol, and percocet mostly when I just can't take it anymore(almost there).
I hope that there is a way to get rid of some of this pain, I swear that my legs have ran a marathon, and they haven't even walked that far! ~X( .
The back pain is also getting worse as I said, I am also getting a lot of pain now in my butt, a deep pain below where my back pain is.
Okay, I will stop now. Thanks for reading!!!!!!!
