I had spinal injections for pain in my left buttocks. On the last one the Dr. hit a nerve which shocked me so bad I broke out in tears . I was still sobbing when he finished. The nerve pain I have had since has gone from bad to worse. I have had sensations in my foot and the side of my left leg. I have been on Tylenol with codeine, Gabapentin, a Medral pack, and now Lyrica, none of these have I gotten much relief from. It seems like it gets worse. My family doctor ordered an MRI which didn' show any significant change since the last one in 2010. I hate being on these drugs and feel so insecure about driving taking them. I'm not able to do anything without feeling this deep nerve pain that radiates into my hip, thigh and buttocks. Is this something permanent?
