[COLOR=Indigo][CENTER][B]Hello Shauna :wave:[/B] [/CENTER]

[INDENT]I am so sorry to hear that you are still in so much pain. The last time I had heard from you was after your hardware removal and you had had a problem with your throat.

As for the nerve damage, I too can relate as I also had an EMG and the conclusion was nerve damage. I have also fallen twice but because of weak ankles. I am now wearing ankle support but most likely I will be having braces made for me after my appointment with neurologist. You must be very careful as these falls could do severe damage. Have they told you exactly what type of nerve damage you have? I am asking this because certain types do require supports or bracing of either legs, feet or both, depending upon the extent of the damage.

As for the trigger point injection's, did you have any type of injection's before your hardware removal? I did go into the hospital and had injection's in different area's around my hardware. This procedure was done to see if the hardware was causing some of my pain. My neuro surgeon had explained to me that these was similar to trigger point injection's. I don't know if you had this procedure before your hardware removal or not. If so, then maybe this helped. Either way, I do hope that these injection's do help you with some of your pain. I will keep you in my prayer's.[/INDENT]
