I just cannot win! I felt like a normal human for the first time in years from last Friday through Monday while on the mega doses of Medrol and as the dose decreased, numbness and pain creeped back in and today on Wed, it's all almost back to presteroid levels!! I could just cry! I do not understand why that nerve is inflamed or whatever. The mri they did on Friday came back normal thank god so redoing the surgery isn't necessary and pt made this all get worse and was discontinued so what the heck? Dr was going to let me go back to work next Monday because I had so dramatically improved but I'm not going back like this! I am so discouraged and confused! Shoulder, neck hurting like presurgery and pointing finger dead numb and hand all tingling and foot tingling and big toe numb. Kind of weird that the pointer on hand and pointer on foot (big toe) are both profoundly numb.
Anyone got any ideas or experiences here?
