I am expiercing pain down my my left leg, knee, groin, and now it seems to be starting to move into my hip. I had an MIR done and it showed Mild Stenosis in my L5 / L4, my family doctor said that wasn't enough damage to cause all the pain I am having.
I showed my MIR to 2 different renowned Neurologistso to get their diagnosis one sturgeon suggested that i needed a decompression and fusion in the L5 / L4 area. Thesecond surgeon agreed with my family doctor and said there was not enough damage in the L5 / L4 area in my back to require going through spine surgery He said the pain symptoms I am expiercing are more likely due to be a hip or knee problem and to go have an MIR done on my my knee and hip. Unfortunately my family doctor does not agree with him and he prescribed a powerful Antivinflamatory drug called PREDNISONE which doesn't seem to be helping me with this pain and now my family doctor is suggesting I have an Epedorial Blok inserted into my lower Spine. I am really confused on what to do next I have lost complete strength in my left leg it hutrs 24/7 and I can hardly stand up It iax hard to believe i was walking up to 10 miles per day just 3 months ago . I would appreciate any advice.
Thank you everyone
