I have severe pain in my right hip that travels down my leg, into my butttock and my foot is hot and tingly all the time. I have had a recent cortizone shot on Wednesday and am on day 4 of a 20 Mg prednisone treatment. I was at the hospital two and a half weeks ago and given steroids then also. It is almost ripping me apart inside. I have had both an MRI and Myleogram that show an extruded disc. I can barely stand the pain any longer. My neuro guy wants me to have an EMG but I'm sick of getting poked and prodded. I can barely move due to the hip and leg pain any more.
I need some ideas here, he says my symptoms arn't true to my MRI but I amalmost ready to shoot myself here so somebody will pay attention to me. Of course this is rather far fetched but I am hurting badly.
