Smile Hi everyone -I am new to the board..

[SIZE=2][COLOR=Indigo][FONT=Arial Black] Hi Everyone I found this board today and I have been reading some of your posts. I was searching because I am being treated for severe pain right now and it gets frustrating.

I'll give you a brief history-I have been having pain in my back for about 14 months and was at first diagnosed with piriformis syndrome. I had the piriformis injection and really never got better.After losing my health insurance for 5 months I finally got to go back to the PM doc. The pain is 10x worse-it is also now in my glute, my hamstring, my calf and my foot. when my foot does not hurt,it is asleep. It is making me crazy

After a recent MRI-it was determined that I have 2 large disc bulges, facet hypertrophy, and some degeneration. I had 3 ESI's and 2 facet injections -no help from any of them. As a matter of fact after the facet injections (both were done at once) I thought I was going to die! Also the PM doc said something about it possibly being disc pain-what is that exactly?

Anyway I am wondering what is next? anyone been through this particular situation? Any and all replies are appreciated. Thankx Deidre
