I have been going to the Drs for quite a while now with chronic pain in my neck, shoulders and thoracic area. They did a MRI on my T-spine and it came back negative, I have also had X-rays which show arthritis in my spine and bone spurs but the Dr didn't seem worried about it... his response "at your age that's nothing to worry about" so I guess its just mild. My regular Dr doesn't really know what it is so he is sending me to an Ortho (have an appt soon) In the mean time my Dr put me on 5/500 Vicodin and 10mg 3x daily Flexiral for the past few months.
Recently I have been having this tingling sharp pain from my butt down the back of my thigh almost to my knee and sometimes around my ankle on the top of my foot. It comes and goes but is here more often then gone. It hurts worse when I am sitting, but I have no choice, as I work at a computer. This pain just started about a week ago and wont go away. It sounds like a lot of the symptoms on the forum. Its like a skinny line of tingling sharp shooting pain... If this is Sciatica, is there something I can do to get rid of it before it gets worse or should I inform my Dr at my next appt?
Thanks for any input...
