I have had severe right leg pain for a few weeks now. I got a cortisone shot yesterday to help it. But now I need another MRI to double check. Well see how that goes. I was recovering really well until I started working again. I also have had severe headaches everyday for 3 weeks now, and have jacked up my right shoulder. I wanna have more time off work. maybe Ill be able to find a different job. not likely though. and I cant not work. I am stressed, hurting, and mostly want my migraine to go away. Its a lot of pain to deal with.


  • Sorry to hear about your headaches and pain and not being ready for work yet. Do you have short term disability benefits at work? Hope they find out what's going on with your MRI. Can you call your Surgeon to let him know about the headaches and pain? Take care. Charry

  • no short term disability, sadly. I am on light duty, but that is less massages a shift, not easier work.

    My dr. has ordered the MRI because of the pain and headaches. The shot took the stabbing pain away, but my calf is still numb and aches so bad I cant sleep well, and never through the night. I wake up several times. Well see what the results are. At least my back itself is recovering and not painful except for the nerve. Ive heard it can be a normal side effect, especially after years of it being crushed and untreated. I was cleared to take aspirin again, and that is helping my headaches, but i am not a fan of masking symptoms, especially if I don't know what the cause is.
