Hi everyone,
I have had leg pain for 10 years now. in the last 8 months it is pretty constant, 24/7. 9 months ago I became ill with symptoms of dizzyness, spaciness, full feeling in ears and nose slightly stuffed, eyes are whack they dont foucus right and are slow to react. I get heavy hot/cold sensations that start in the center of my back and radiate out to my shoulders and into my upper arms. All of these probs started a couple days after stoping a month of protonix. The day I stoped the protonix I had dug over a 100' of ditch 5' deep because my help laid out.

I have been out of work for 9 months due to those symptoms. No one can figure it out. This morning, after a lot of research, I found something that very closely matches my leg pain. It is called sciatic nerve impingement. It is normally caused by a sliped disk. Is it possible that all my probs are caused by a sliped disk, maybe putting pressure on spine and CSF fluid causing pressure on ears nose and eyes thus causing dizziness. I would like to tell my doc this but dont want to sound like an idiot. Please tell me what you think.

Let me add that I get headaches in my brainstem and temples at least once a week and at one time 4-5 days a week.

Thanks

Derek

Hi Derek ... I have proven for myself beyond a doubt that Vit B sorts out my sciatica to a large extent. It feeds the nerves in that area as well as else where. I strongly suggest you get a good vit B complex and take it daily in the mornings. I am on a strong one that is also 'slow release' and this one has worked best for me (it is .. 'Timed release, Busy B with C, High Strength' -I'm in the UK and get it from a health shop) .... I have also suffered with headaches and have proven for myself, they are mostly diet related, namely cheese .... (other things like red wine, chocolate, sausages & bacon can trigger them in some people due to a product in these foods called 'Tiramine' (sp??). Occasionally hormones can trigger a headache for me. My headaches usually start in one of my eyes and then spread. If I stay off eating fresh cheese on its own, I can usually avoid a headache ... a bit on pizza etc usually isn't enough to do it. At one stage for some time, I was very spacey and occasionally dizzy .... I think it was caused by a certain brand of thyroid treatment I was on and had it changed to a different brand .... settled down now .... but I do think the vit B has helped all round ... so do give it a try .... and check you are not on some drug that may be causing any side effects ... good luck :)

Hello Derek, I have not been on here in months and months and posting here has changed so I hope I have done this right. Are you seeing a neuro? If not, I would suggest you see one. Your symptoms lasting this long and affecting your work do sound like they may be caused by a disk. I have had about 25 years of back problems, went through every non invasive treatment there was before I did end up having to have surgery. A neuro. will always try every non invasive treatment and surgery is a last resort. Also, the other symptoms you are having are common when your leg problem has been going on for so long. When it is not taken care of, it actually can move to other parts of your body. The treatments I highly recommend if you are not already receiving them are physical therapy soft tissue work. This is also one of the first places a neuro. usually sends you. Please let me know how you do. After this long, you should be recovered, not still suffering, so i would get a 2nd opinion from a neuro. if you can. I hope I have helped. Kamden
