My Girlfriend has been dealing with this mysterious sciatic/sacral pain for 2 years. It is extremely debilitating but no doctor can seem to pin point what the issue is. She has had 7 MIR's, a CT scan and 2 EMG/NCV test. Everything is "normal". Her doctor is pushing for a SCS. We are both pretty uncomfortable with just trying to mask the pain when we have no idea where it is originating from. She has had no injuries and lived a very healthy active life. She is 27 years old.
I posted a detailed history on the sciatic forum. But for this forum my question is...
Would get the SCS without a diagnosis? At what point should she give up searching for an answer and just try to mask the pain?
