| | Severe back hip and leg pain.....help
I have been dealing with lower back pain for the last few years. The left side of my back gets extremely swollen and feels like a baseball is in it. I had my first child less than a year ago and during my pregnancy my pain increased.( I had the back pain long before being pregnant)
After I had my first child the pain in my back became dibilitating. On top of the excrusiating back pain I started having sciatic pain in my left leg and for the last 3 months at least I have had no feeling from my knee down on my left leg. Since having my child I have seen a nuerosurguen, my primary, a pain rehabilitation dr and have gone to physical therapy twice which made my pain worse. I now have a referral to go see a nuerologist.
In the last month and a half I have had severe right leg pain now. Its a little different than my left leg pain so I'm not sure if its my sciatic nerve in my right leg. In my right leg I have similar symptoms except I have a lot more pain in my hip and in my knee almost as if its a pulsatiting pain and there is no numbness.
I have a 9 month old daughter that I can barely play with because I can't move. I don't feel relief when I'm laying down sitting standing, etc.
I have had 2 mri, an x ray or my back. My x ray came back normal. My mri says I have degenetive disc, spinal stenosis, and slipped discs in my L3-L4,L4-L5,L5-S1.
Even with all that the nuro surgeon said its not operable.
I have been on prednizone, tremedol 50 and 100. I have been given mucsle relaxers and on vicodin and nothing is helping my pain. I'm only 25 and I feel as if I'm 90. I can't move,and its debilitating. What can they do to help me or what can they be missing............. I need any amd all suggestions please
