I received my neurology visit accessment letter today. In it it said that i have scar tissue OVER the nerve root. And also that I walk with a 'Spastic Gait' which I had no idea. I've realised that I walk a little funny but that's to ekkp the pain off one side. I thoroughly believe it is also because i have a numb ankle and therefore it appears the nerve isn't responding in that area. Great hey! I have spoken of my numb ankle and toe for the past 18 months and only now from them seeing me walk have they realised? I don't know, do they know?
I had my nerve root injection which bloody hurt and i asked for the doctor to please report any findings in his report to the neurologists. He came to me after the procedure and said that my nerve is very inflamed and DOUBLE the size of the left one and no wonder i am in intense pain. It's not compressed but largely inflammed!
I really hope i now qualify for the dorsal column stimulator. Maybe the neurologists at the hospital won't now turn a blind eye.
Peace, love and light to all x
