I'm having horrible problems with my sacral joint and I'm wondering if anyone knows whether this can cause the thigh to ache so bad I can't sleep.
Every time I tell my Dr. I have a new symptom, she blames it on "Neuropothy". I can't even find the definition of the word.
I've had allot of low back, hip and knee pain caused by "degeneration", but when my feet went numb she just blamed it on pinched nerves without doing any tests.
When I couldn't sit, no matter what I tried, due to tailbone pain she just blamed it on degeneration and pinched nerves. After 6 months of having to lay around when I was in too much pain to continue to try and keep busy (to keep my mind off my pain) she finally suggested a cortisone shot. TOTAL DISASTER!! While they were putting that long a** needle in my sacral joint, the x-ray showed an " abnormality" right where the pain is. So finally she is going to do an MRI.
Unfortunately the Pain clinic where I had the shot, recommended to her that I be taken off my Morphine. After 10 years of trying everything possible and jumping through every hoop, before we tried narcotics to be successful, all it took was someone telling her they didn't think the SR was appropriate and she's tapering me off. I'm sorry! That's a whole different subject for another time.
What I'm wondering is why my pain travels from the back of my hip down the front of my right leg. Even on the 60mg Morphine ER TID and 1200 mg of Gabapentin TID, I get no relief and can't sleep at all at night.
I already tried ice and heat. I'm running out of ways I can sleep.
Supposedly, my neck and shoulder pain are "Neuropothy". My back, hip,and knee are all " degeneration" and my numb feet and stabbing pain in left arm/breast, and leg are
supposedly pinched nerves.
Can anyone relate? and I need advice about my Dr. Does anyone have a similar experience with Drs or advice on how to deal with them?
Thank you for your time and trouble in advance. Much appreciated!!
