Hi again another question. My primary has sent me to a PM and he wants to start me on the ESI series of injections. I have my diagnosis (L4-L5 bulge and L5-S1 herniated w/pinched nerve) but I still haven't been in to see a specialist. my primary is trying to get me in to a neuro. I am to receive my 1st ESI next Tuesday. I've had drop foot for about a month and a half now. Just wondering don't you usually see a specialist before you start with PM treatment? I've not even had an EMG yet and my PM has already told me that we won't know for 6 months or more if I have permanent nerve damage. Just confused feel like I am being jerked around this is a w/c case and it just feels like no one wants to help me. Anyway any feedback would be great.
