Re: anyone know

I had the 'running water' feeling over the top of my foot before my hemilaminectomy. I understand the location of the symptoms help determine which level of the spine is involved.

Re: anyone know

If you have pain in the areas you mentioned, I can safely assume you had the procedure done in your lumbar?

In my 5 year "epic" related to my riding accident, I've noticed there's this assumption that all of your pain is from 1 source (disc, whatever) and the other locations of your pain are radiating from than 1 source. Problem is, there could be multiple sources. In my situation, I had 3: torn disc, SI joint pain, and sciatica.

The most difficult one to ID the hows or whys is my SI joint. Disc is self-explanatory, and sciatica from my piriformis (under the glutes, so may be a possible source of you pain). It took 4 years and a successful IDET before the SI was id'd as separate and not radiation from the disc tear.

My SI seems to be concentrated (just right at the source). But, I did also have some problems with my backside - I could run my finger vertically on the outside, and feel the tingling on the other side (next to my back). Still don't know what the cause was, but upping my Neurontin seems to have almost, if not completely, eliminated that problem.

My sciatica affects my backside as well, the back of my thigh, and sometimes down to the top of my foot to my middle toe. That aches when I sit, stand, lie down, walk...did I leave anything out?!?!?!?!? haha! I use stretches designed for the piriformis, the "tennis ball" technique, and massage therapy to make it through the workday.

I wish I had an answer for you, but all I can say is to keep plugging away and don't give up or take no for an answer. Exhaust ALL diagnoses to know what you really have.

Keep us posted on your progress...good luck. We're here for you! Paige

Re: anyone know

I have SI problems but it did not cause the pain you describe. Mine was in the very low back and buttock. Yours sounds more like a disc problem to me. If you don't have an OSS or NS, you should be looking into finding one. The numbness indicates some nerve impingement and I think you need an MRI.

Let us know what you find out.
