Hello. I am new to this website and hoping someone can give me some advice to has been where I now am.
About three years ago, I began having a pain in the top of my right thigh. I thought at first I had just pulled a muscle, but three months later I went and had an MRI/CT and a series of tests done and nothing ever showed up. I was told this was just something I would have to deal with and I have for three years. I had an MRI done a couple of weeks ago because I have been having Sciatica pain as well. I have a bulging disc in L4 and L5, but the doctor says this is NOT the cause of my thigh pain.
They now want to do a series of nerve tests and want to do epidural injections and then they say they still will not be able to tell if all this will help. I am extremely frustrated. I am mostly worried that this is going to do permanent damage if I don't find out what is wrong, and that one day I will wake up and not be able to walk or function.
I can learn to live with the pain as I have for three years, but I am so worried about permanent damage. Just wonder if anyone has ever experienced the same problem, and if so, how are you dealing with it. I am just so sick of being shuffled around to different doctors I am just about to give up. Thank you for your help and understanding. Maxine
