SO FRUSTRATED!!!! I feel that I am being so jerked around!!!!! Is there a way to determine the source of the pain, whether it is my hip or back???? One doctor(a hip doctor) thought it was my hip so he did a cortisone injection: it didn't help at all. Then, he ordered an MRI and diagnosed me with spinal stenosis and said that I also had 2 bulging disks. The next thing from this same doctor was a spinal injection with cortisone; it did not help. He wanted to do 2 other ones and I said NO and that I wanted to go see a spine specialist. Next thing was me to see a spine specialist; This spine specialist gave me another hip injection, but this time on the outside of the hip. It made the pain worse. A nerve block was then ordered by the same doctor for my back on both sides of L5; didn't work-----no reprieve from the pain. I called him and now he tells me I need to see a hip specialist. I have already seen a hip specialist and he said it was my back!!!!! I hope this makes sense. Do any of these doctors know what they are doing? I am in so much pain and don't know what to do next! I am so afraid that I am going to go off on one of these doctors because of my immense frustration and pain! Any suggestions????"
