Hello all just wanted to let you all know what was goin on had my appointment with my ortho today and got the results from my mri and emg test.
Everything came back neg and this has my ortho and pmd other wise stumped.
Both the ortho and pmd told me that they dont know what the prob is and he is not comfortable with telling me that is is just soft tissue damage because of the pain I keep explaining and the exact places of the pain and the numbness and weekness in my legs and how my left leg just buckle does not coralate with soft tissue damage...sighsssss...agrrrrr im so frustrated on one hand am glad that nothing showed up but on the other I want to know what is the matter with my lower back and legs.
I was a bit upset in the office because im so sick of this and I hate not knowing what the prob is. I almost felt llike the doc is looking at me like im faking and I told him today that I was not faking and that I am in a extreme amount of pain all the time. To his credit he did tell me he didnt think that I was because I have a legit condition in my neck with the herenatied disc that is causeing me probs as well. He also said that if I was looking for a huge settlement from my acc that I would be using the probs with my neck and not keep going on about probs with my back that dont show anything. Which I was glad of at least he said that and it made me feel a bit better that he was taking me seriously.
I am so sick of going to all these docs. Everytime I turn around im off to a diff doc.
My pain is in my lower back right above my butt cheek goes straight across and goes down the crack of my but and right into the center there is this spot that hurt like heck and feels hard and is painful to touch, some times the pain even goes into by bits for lack of a better word on here
. I also have pressure on my rectum at times that feels like a numb pain that hurts. A bone on bone feeling . I also have pain that goes down the left side of my but cheek down the back of my thigh and I have numbness and tingleing in both feet and sometimes my calfs. My left leg buckel at times or just goes dead and I dont even realize it.
The reason why I decieded to post the pain is that I am hoping that maybe someone on here has the same or some of the same probs and might be able to help me with what they docs have said is the matter with them.
Also I was reading up on the emg and nerve conduction test and they said that you shouldnt smoke or drink caffene 3 hrs proir to test or take meds 6 hrs prior to test no one told me this and I had all. Would that casue my test to come out different?
I just want to know what the prob is so that I can find a way to help myself or at the least manage it. How can you manange something that you dont know what it is?
Any adivice would be grateful
Thanks so much
