I'm new here. There is a lot of great information on this forum.
Here is my story.
Let me start with, i ride motocross so i'm sure my pain has a lot to do with that. I also jog a lot.
About a year ago i started to notice my right leg would go numb while driving. I did not think much of the issue until my leg started to go numb while just sitting at my desk. I went to see an ortho about the issue.
Collected an MRI of my lower back. The doc could not find anything squeezing or causing my nerve issues. He went forward with some type of nerve block injection. No luck after that. Then we went forward with burning the nerve in my lower back. I know there is a name for that just not sure what it is called. This also did not help much. We collected more data by injecting dye into the spine and getting xray's while that happened. The doc found that my s1 was squeezing the sciatic nerve a bit. From what he can see it is not much. He thought the next best route would be doing an epidural shot. Well here are am two weeks later and it did not seem to help.
Just wondering i hear those normally come in 3's. Is this correct?
Also people that have dealt with this in the passed do you ever get 100% again?
I am taking Gabapentin 3 times a day and this is helping me do active things. I know its not a long term fix but, it is helping me for now.
