Well, went to see my doctor today and I got good news......bad news.....and ugly news! I hate all three but at least we have an idea of what we need to do.
Good news: Apparently there is a problem with my Mylo that doc actually discovered. The nerves close to the Sacral sac and my spinal canal that is narrowing which is causing pressure on my sciatica nerve which obviously is causing the searing pain in my legs. So this is the good news!
Bad News: The medications that are normally used to relieve pain for a person in my amount of pain is never going to work with my condition. Which means they are only putting me into a pain fog for nothing.
Ugly News: No amount of Medications in the world are going to help me with the pain and I am what they call "Screwed" as the PM doc said.
Solution?: Yes ladies and gents....there is a solution! Place me on the list for a Stimulator and hope to god I get it!
Worse then worse problem: Oh yeah there is one of these too!
I get to jump through two thousand hoops to convince WC to allow the Stimulator to be put in!
And last but not leastly.....check this out.......I now have a new problem to deal with....................WC is never going to approve the Stimulator and I will end up taking them to court to get the stimulator placed because the medications will not work on the area that my pain is located.
Tell me my friends.....does this make any sense??????
