Great idea and an easier way to keep up with whats what with everyone.
I go back to pain mangement on the 15th. So as to docs still doing PT 3x a week and waiting to see pain man. doc. Still in pain, legs still weak, neck and shoulder is still bothering me, still tingling and numbeness in left arm but not as bad. My pain is deff. the worst at night both with lower back and neck. I used to love the nights, now I just dread them as I am still not getting much more than 3 to 4 hrs at night and with the start of school it makes it worse as I have to get up at 5 with kids for school.
Been doin some streches at night and they help but as soon as I stop pain is back sighsss. Wonder if I could hire someone to come in a just massage me intil I was asleep god sounds like heaven doesnt it!

Hllo PAlay sorry to hear you are up for more test. That sucks and thats putting it lightly. It can be so exhausting to say the least andt thats putting it lightly!
But hey Im up for some choc sauce if you care to share lol...at least something can get met even if its a choc craving lol....
Not been feeling welll this last week... had about 3 days that I felt better and thought maybe shots were working and now pain is back with a vengence...both neck and lower back sighssss... have had a 5 day migrane on top of it.. have knots in my neck that dont seem to want to go away. Still not sleeping as Im sure that doesnt help any of it. Dont go back to the doc intil the 15th. NOt sure what will be done this time. Still trying to hold out hope though
Hows things with the car? Did you get your tire fixed yet. Its always somethings isnt it... sorry to hear as well that your guest havent left yet.
Ry am gald you had a good visit and felt good about it and sorry the other docs didnt follow through and get your records sent that sucks. really hope that you get the results you are needing and Im right there with you if you want another advocoate I do seriouly have a big mouth and refuse to not be heard lol so i will be by your side if you want it
Take care all and will keep you posted
Hello all ,
I have my appointment with my pain management doc tomorrow, they called to comfirm on friday and I asked if I was to get the 3rd injection as I havent had much help with the 2nd....and they said yes...I told them that I have had some reliefe with pain but I am having alot of lef weekness and seems to keep getting worse sighsss. I cant stand up for more than 10 mins and forget walking for any amount of time( I have been using a cane when I have to walk)
Still got the same answer from the nurse she sais yes will be getting 3rd injection and to consult doc about leg weekness. sighssss can I just say I am so sick of doctors at this point!
Heres a question for whom ever it applys....I was told you can only get 3 injections within a 6 month period but I have run into several people that told me that they have had 4 or 5 injections all about 2 weeks apart. My question is has anyone had more than the 3 injections within the 6 month period and if so why? And why have some gotten more and some are told only 3?
Next question is would anyone know why I am having so much leg weekness? It seems like thats getting worse, as the day goes on my legs get weeker and weeker and they basicaly feel like jelly and they shake.
and Just to let you all know if I dont get any reliefe from this shot and if leg weekness continues I will be making an appointment with either a neurologist or neuro surgen to get a second O. I feel like im just being givin shots and the doc isnt listening to me about anything else and I so didnt like his explaintion about it being a wild fire that needs to be put out a litttle at a time.
