Back Problems board


HI everyone!

I had a spinal fusion w/instrumentation in 2002. L3,4, and 5. I do have neuropathy (sp?) alot of hip pain, and leg pain. and just general malaise all the time! This past June my Dr. decided to order Spinal epiduals for me. I've had two. Since this time, I have been feeling something similar to small voltage feeling starting at the base of my neck and going down both shoulders (not into the arms, stops at shoulders) and down my upper back to about my bra strap area. My boyfriend hugged me pretty tightly today and squeezed me as he usually does, and I felt like I'd stuck my finger in a light socket! This scares the crap out of me! Called my dr. he said call the pain clinic where I had the injections done. They don't thinkt here is any relation. This makes me very nervous and scared. What if it's a brain thing?!! I do take Vicodin regularly for back pain and now am on a progesterone for hormones (female issues). I don't know what to do! I can't find anything on the web even similar to this. Any ideas? :confused:
