Dr changed treatment plan! Please read!
Initially dr said I had bulgin disc causing nerve impingement, now Dr. Said he thinks I have Achilles tendontis since my pain is above heel & below calf. I'm so confused. I'm not sure if i Should stretch now. I can hop on my foot, but when I started cardio again, hopping and kicking big heavy bag, my pain (in that one area) is EXCRUTIATING, intermittent pain. Ice doesn't really help, & he put me back on Naprocyn & trying a steroid, 7 day dose, prednisone.I have been treating for bulging disc & drying up disc, thinking it was a nerve impingement at that area of my leg.. My back doesn't hurt at all. He doesn't think the disc issues are causing that severe pain. He told me MRI shows nothing severe, so he came to the new diagnosis. Any thoughts? Can this leg pain be from the nerve? I am so discouraged! I've been doing all these stretches for spine issues, & now I'm not supposed to stretch!
