Hi all!

I had Caudal Epi Inj 7/28. Feels like it's addressing tailbone pain. I AM able to sit for longer periods w/out having to shift or stand. For that, I'm thankful. I have another sched for Tues 8/12.

Thursday, 7/31,, I had some pretty severe 'zapping' in my right hip, travelled down my leg to the toes. Stopped me in my tracks 3 times. Called doc. Sect'y recorded it/said nurse would call back. She didn't. Had a couple more times w/ the zapping. My big toe and next 2 felt strange to walk on...and even tingled while sitting.

Yesterday, I was up @ 5 - couldn't sleep. I have ALOT of nerve things going on. By last night, the 'stretched skin' feeling was back on top of my foot. numb/tingles travelling up my right leg (outside AND front) almost to knee. Left calf - outside only. Throughout the day...pain in right hip progressively getting worse.

Dull, aching throb Near tailbone...but NOT Directly at tip (if that makes sense) So, I think the injection is still working on that. But, my Right Dimple/Right Hip and now...right leg are having Burning, Zinging constant yesterday. I am better after sleeping or lying down. Oh... also have Spasms in Right Thoracic area on back.

I am SO bummed. I felt like I was walking so tenderly yesterday so as not to aggravate it. I had to take more BT. And Still was hurting. All I can think is "I am 40. How am I going to feel when I'm 50, 60...?" I plan to live til I'm 100....but, if I'm going to be I want that? :(

Sorry so long. I'm just getting a little freaked about all this tingly stuff. I almost feel like the tear has become Worse @ L4!! :eek: Is that possible w/out having done Anything I can think of?

Thnx for listening [img][/img]
