well three week since my nerve block injections and i am still getting the leg,foot and now lower back pain. For the first week i really thought it had worked then increased my activities and bingo back it came. Drove with breaks for 80 miles only to suffer that night and following day with serve pain mainly in my thigh around front unable to raise leg to climb stairs without shooting pain. Went back on co-codemol only to get indigestion, waiting for physio appointment to try and stretch nerve out has that is what they say is the problem still taking Nortriptyline 40mg at night which i was hoping i could lessen after injections but not looking that way. i keep moving and have a job where i am able to alter my position and move around infact i walk miles with in my job role. By the end of the day my legs are painfull and my physio says my thigh and calf Muscles are very tight so need stretching every so after. all this seems to step from my two bulging discs which i know is going to be for my life time and i have been told i will never be totaly pain free but they say i can hopfully can reach what is a manageable pain level just wish it could be reached soon has i have already had to change my job and lifestyle also my main hobbies of gardening and walking seem to be less achievable too.
