Re: Have I really got osteoarthritis of the spine/

OP here.

Since my original posting, I have had a root nerve injection, the doctor who gave it to me stating that if the pain persists after within 6 hours, then the original diagnosis of osteoarthritis causing the pain is incorrect! After one week I am still suffering. My doctor now says it maybe something else to do with the spine, and is consulting the doctor who gave me the nerve injection.

I am adamant that the pain is being caused by something not connected to the spine. Why am I having feelings of cramp, with pain, a very sensitive skin, and areas of my leg which are very tender.

Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
