Hey wickedcrazy ,
HemiL here. Thanks for keeping us posted. Whoa so they haven't ruled out the spinal leak yet. Uggh I hate Lumbar punctures. I had 1 attempted at bedside 4 times. It was the worst thing ever. I'm glad you are going to see a counselor, because this really sounds like alot to deal with. I swear these health problems some of us have may not have been caused by depression and anxiety originally, but it certainly can lead us down that path.
So if the neurosurgeon does not want to treat the disc bulge with surgury, how do they want you to take care of that? Just through steroid injections, pain medication and other alternative therapies? Is it something you may eventually have to have corrective surgery for?
I am glad you are trying to get your financial things in order. With your little one you have to make sure that is a top priority. I get alot of help with my finances. I just can't seem to stay on top of things since I am not really capable at the moment.
Oh yes and I am very biased against Neurontin, But I took for pain and symptoms related to migraine. It may work for you though.
Good to hear from you. I'm glad to see you're still hanging in there.
