Hi

Hi gregz hope you find some relief, I've just had lumbar injections which have helped my legs and the tingling has stopped😃But another pain in my side has emerged 😡However take the good with the bad I'd rather have the side pain then legs I do think it's trial and error and always be open to anything new. My gp o told me the lumbar injections rarely work however they did👍

Glad to hear you have had success with your injections and the tingling has stopped. Is your side pain a new symptom? If so, perhaps you should seek medical guidance.

Hope your symptoms continue to improve.

It really does make me cross when lazy or ill informed doctors put everything down to fibro. Even people with fibro can get appendicitis, arthritis, pulled tendons, cancer, and, like you with prolapsed discs that are not fibro related in any way.

Since having and surviving renal cancer I am much more aware of what my body is doing and making sure I am proactive with regards to the NHS.

I am pleased to see we are of the same mind!
