thanks Susie, yes i have both reports, it appears in comparing them that my problem maybe compression as "statically" the MRI shows L4 nerve touching, but its more likely compressed upon sitting , driving and bending or physical activity..i can actually feel the sensations change from general 'sensations to sore nerve pain.
i see the neurosurgeon for roughly three month check on 6 of Feb.(3 months two weeks) HE has scheduled me a 15 min appointment ..great! I did discuss Lyrica or Gabapentin with my spine physio but they said if the nerve pain is only happening via activity or compression mechanically meds cant stop that and would be not worth serious side effects....
I did have a question for you Susie with your experience. I seem to get quite a lot of relief, not 100% but quite a bit from ice packs and anti inflams on bad days and on the bottom of my MRI report the radiologist recommendations stated: 'correlation with inflammatory markers recommended, aetiology may be linked to small post surgical para spinal tissue fluid collection (4mm) a surgical site with inflammatory fluid signal present??. I did ask my GP but he thought it wasnt related , i wonder what this means, any ideas?
