I had an epidural on the 27th of last month.
I woke up from a procedure felt like a herd of cattle ran over my spine.
I have had epidural's in the past so I know what's normal pain.
The attempts done on me...try this on....6 times!
I have pictures to prove these crazy excessive sticks!
I started with these BANGING head aches..ended up getting an epidural blood patch.
This fixed the headaches...BACK PAIN...NO..still in agony..I live laying on ice and on my back..
Only to add insult to INJURY...I now have these painful & annoying SPASMS all over the place.
I have ZERO control over trying to stop the "twitch" sometimes they can SHOCK through my entire body!
Stress..will make the spasms and twitches..more frequent!
I ended up getting an MRI..and these are the results...
The lumbar spine is normally aligned. There is normal marrow and cord ssignal.There are noo abnormally enhancing lession.Vertebral body and disc space heights are preserved. There ishyperintense T1/T2 signal in the right posterolateral disc space at L4-5 and centrally att L5-S1 duggestive of an annular tear. There is borad based disc bulge at L3-4 with mild neural foraminal stenosis.
1.Annular tear posterolaterally at L4-L5 and centrally at L5-S1 that enhances on the post-gadolium images.
I went to a "Pain Management " Dr..all they want to do is PILL PUSH..
I don't want anymore pills..I want to be fixed!
Tell me please..what should I do next??
Thank You in advance..
