I am new here and let me tell you a little of my story first...
I was born with a leg & foot deformity. As I started growing I developed scolosis. I have always had sever migraines and sever back & leg pain as well. Thru my younger years, I went to all sorts of specialists to figure out "whats wrong". Everyone just said...no idea.
In 2005, I had my first MRI...
I was diagnosed with Tethered Spinal Cord Syndrome. This is apparently what caused the deformity in the womb to begin with.
I have been seeing my reg. Dr regarding the migraines & pain and he refered me to a Neuro.
The Neuro & my reg Dr dismissed the TSC and started me on specific migrain meds. (none of which work)
In April, I got such bad siatica pain that I couldnt move for 3 days. I went back to the Dr and he told me that I have to give it time and anti-inflamitories. (dont work) But I was getting 7 percocet a month so I had to use those instead.
It has now been 3 months & that specific pain is still there. I have gone to see a spine specialist and had another MRI. (I get the results today)
I guess my question is....I have been on SO many meds for ALL of my pain, I have found that only the percocet actually helps. I dont want to sound like a druggie to the Dr, so how do I approach this? There are good days & bad, but mostly bad, and I hate being in pain all the time.
Any advice? :icon_confused: <!--graemlin:
