I had an MRI in November and it showed l3 - l4 annular tear and l4- l5 dis bulge impinging on the nerve. I started taking Lyrica, Tramadol, Diazepam and 5mg lidocaine patch for leg pain.
I had a set of Caudal epidural injections 31st January and a set of Nerve Root injections 20th February and last Wednesday 8th March I was put on 10 mg morphine patch and so far no relief from anything ( and I am still using all the above meds).
I am in excruciating pain in my back, coccyx, buttocks, front and back of legs and feet. I still have to work as I am on my own with 2 children. My life is work and bed and my heart bleeds for my children
Has anybody suffered the same symptoms and if so have they any advice or what did they have to get done to relieve the pain?
All replies would be greatly appreciate.
