hello everyone, i just want to wish everyone a safe new years and no pain for the new year.  I have suffered from lower back pain for 2years now, i had herniated disc and degenarate facet desease what they saw on my mri 2years ago and arthritis. don't know what kind? just recently i saw a neurollogist and he said there is nothing wrong with my nerves, why do i have pain down my legs everyday. he said it could be something else. and the herniated will not cost pain down my legs. really didnt' make any sense. i'm talking to my health insurance to find me another dr.  anybody know what type of test that needs to be done or i might lack of supplements or something is not functioning that why is this happening. thanks guys i truly appreciate all your inputs...

lower back herniated disc, degenarate disc, fibromayalgia, med-oxy 20,motrin, soma & ambien.

If your neurologist said that a herniated disc will not cause pain to go down your leg then yes I agree that it's time to find a new doctor! I have a friend who has DDD and recently had surgery to repair a herniated disc in her lower back. But before the surgery, yes she had almost constant pain radiating down her legs in addition to losing bowel control.
