Back Problems board


Hey guys

Just an insight first....I injured my back by a fall early May. MRI shows L4/L5 annuler bulge compressing on both L5 nerve roots and annular bulge at L3/L4 and L5/S1 with no compression. I have wicked back pain and sciatic pain in both legs but primarly the left.....EMG show left leg nerve damage also

Now I am expirencing hip pain on the left side and right side just like sciatica pain.....it very annoying also like all back related pain my question my all of a sudden am I getting that pain? did my L5/S1 impinge on nerve?

I see my neuro again 9/8 so we'll see where we go from there

I had a epidoral injection early June all it did was cause more pain now I take Flexeral and Vicodin ES.....I'd like to ask for Oxycontin when I see my Dr. because the ES only works an hour or 2 thenI have to wait in pain for 4 more hours until I can take another ES pill plus I am not to keen on 750 mg Tylenol

Thanks for listening

Mark
