Hi, I haven't been on the boards for awhile . I have been having some really bad pain. It started in Jan. and is getting increasingly worse. So, I had an mri and it wasn't too impressive. The only new thing it showed was that I have a spinal deformity at L4 and it was pressing on the thecal sac on the right side. The problem is the pain-excruciating in the morning or after a nap is on the left side. Long story short, PM said lets try a high volume caudal epidural. By the way that is the most painful injection I have ever had in the history of all of the shots I have had. Anyway, for some reason he could not get the needle where he thought it would be the most helpful. Then he showed me the xray thingy ( can't think of the name right now) and he said, this is scar tisssue-and a lot of it. I guess I am just wondering if anyone else has had pain form scar tissue. how did it feel and what did you do for relief? Mine is intense upon waking up a 10 on the scale. This pain has gone from my low back and tailbone to my hip. I am seeing my primary soon since PM doesn't know where to go from here. Any suggestions, or thoughts on what this could be-or could scar tissue cause this type of pain, I would love to hear from you.
