Re: Sciatica??????
Jul 10, 2013
Boy do I feel your pain. Its def sciatica. I had a herniated disc for 20 yrs (l4/l5). Although this has been a slow process that has increased throughout the years, its been about the last 9 that have been unbearable. Been to numerous docs, MRI’s/x-rays chiropractors, massage therapy, acupuncture and even cortisone shots that didn’t help. You name it I tried it. I’ve had four different specialists/opinions and so many docs that I cant even remember their names now and no one could figure out where the nerve was pinching. I then decided to have the surgery even though my doc said it would not help because they could not figure where the never is pinching. Well he was right. I still have the pinching and burning and pain in my legs, pain from my hip to just under my buttocks every day now. Before the surgery it was centralized to one leg, now its both accompanying with permanent numbness in portions of my legs. Its been 3 yrs since the surgery. The pain used to come and go but now its chronic every day, all day. I’m 57 and my once active life has now permanently stopped. I feel like an invalid and depression is settling in. What a terrible feeling that you have a medical issue that no one can fix what a crappy quality of life we that have this problem now has to deal with. So much for advanced medicine.
