I have had severe nerve pain in my legs and feet, for about 7 months. I have seen this doctor since the pain has started. Just recently had a ct scan which indicates buldging disc irritating the nerves in lower lumbar region. Trying to get into see a neuro- surgeon as in excruciating pain. My doctor does not feel comfortable call secretary to get an earlier appointment as I'm just a chronic pain person not someone who has a tumor in spine. Any ideas how to get an earlier appointment with NS?
