Hi Dr. Whitworth.. I have been reading your posting.. especially the ones about the use of cardual and fluroscopes during an epidural treatment.. you are soo correct.. and most people are not well informed about this. I have had numbness in right foot since my 1994 herniated disc surgery.. but in this last year it has gotten worst.. today I felt my ankle also went numb? If I lay on my back and shift all my weight to the right.. my entire right heel get intensly numb.. feels hot and really hurts. I am in treatment with a pain doctor and todate I have had two cardual for lysis scar tissue removal.. steroid injections... trigger points injections.. radiofrequency treatment but facets were not touched just the main nerve was reprogrammed and I am wearing a tens unit now for muscle spasms and nerve pain. My myleogram showed a bulging disc at L4-L5.. scar tissue at L5-S1..and DDD.
With all the treatments I have had done todate I am very happy to now be taking only two codienes a day and celebrex twice a day.. however the nerve pain I get towards the late afternoon is still a concern and so is this increasing numbness of my right foot. Thank you for any info you are able to share.
