I've got 4 weeks today until my 'see and do' procedure with a nerve root block at pain clinic.After having helpful advice from some of you, i spoke to my GP who prescribed me gabepentin on top of other meds. Been taking them for 2 weeks tomorrow, last week felt more mobile and better. Until yesterday.
I decided as I felt a bit better I would hoover instead of asking my partner to do it again amongst all the other stuff that needs doing at the mo(lawn mowing/garden sorting, getting suitcases down, de frosting freezer etc)
Since then I've been in awful pain down back of left leg, bad lower back pain.Today struggling to walk again and sharp spasm pains in top left thigh-so painful it makes me shout out and stop as its soo painful.Just when I was starting to feel better-one step forwards and two steps back.
I hate not being able to drive and do other simple things
I'm feeling slightly nervous about nerve root block and how painful its going to be but hoping it will help but I dont want to get too optimistic.I still need to find out about y tarlov cyst that my specialist didn't even tell me about!I will see what the pain dept says!
Just had to rant and rave and moan
Hows everyone else?
