Hello everyone, because my mom isn't very computer savvy, I decided to sign up here to gather information for her. She had the herniated disc affect her L5-S1. She has been to numerous doctors and gone through tests and shots, physical therapy and drugs. She said the sciatic nerve pain isn't as bad on her legs but she's now suffering with this intense burning pain in her groin and the bottoms of her feet. She can't take the medications out there because she hates the side effects. I hate seeing her in this pain and am here to see if I can get some answers for her. She has an appointment with an orthopedic doctor soon to talk about options but she doesn't know where else to turn and is feeling very depressed and hopeless. It's been about 4 months and after reading other stories here, I see many have suffered way longer than that and that scares me. Any help is welcome, thank you for your time.
