Ekkk that scares me just thinking of it!!  But yes it's true.  I have been experiencing a new symptom that seems to be attached to my back.  I have now been experiencing a lot of nerve pain in my feet.  It's like they are being stretched like taffy and it hurts like heck!!!  I don't know what in the world is going on but I will make sure that I tell my doctor when I go in next month.
Hugss to all of ya!
What doesn't kill us only makes us fight back harder! :P
Two level fusion on S1- L4 in 2000. One level fusion on L3-L4 in 2003 and revision on L3-L4 6 months later.  This led to a diagnose of failed back syndrome, nerve pain and Chronic Pain. Two bi-lateral patellar realignments on both knees last one in 1988.  Overall...I'm in great health.

Ugh new symptoms are awful. It's just like WHAT NOW? I'm dealing with something new. I hate it. Just leave me alone, stupid body. I need to sit my body down for a long talk about what it can and can not do. The Do's and Dont's.

Do: Feel good and happy

Don't: Wake me up at 5am after 2 hours of sleep with pain

Do: Heal quickly

Don't: Develop new sores and infections

Do: Win the lottery and move to a private island with live in doctors and nurses

Don't: Win less than 50 million

I can hope.
Diabetes: 25 units of Lantus insulin, 1500mg of metformin
Neuropathy: 300mg of Lyrica, 100mg of Tramadol 3x a day, Norco 30mg 3x a day, or as needed for the pain.
Supraventricular Tachycardia (SVT) and Arrhythmia: 50mg of Metoprolol 2x a day.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS): Lomotil and Promethazine as needed.
High Blood pressure: Metoprolol and 100mg of Cozaar
High Cholesterol: 40mg of Pravachol

Hello Scarred! You just are not having a good time at all are you! Sounds like it's one thing after another for you these days. Are you seeing a PM OR A PCD for you're pain issues? I'm a guessing from some of your other post you have had a few surgery on you're back. Do you think it is related to your leg problem now? Lets hope not! I just wanted to wish you the best, and I hope you can sincerely get some relief from it as well.
