I fell in June or July of 2006. I then started getting leg weakness. I went to my primary care doctor. He said it was all in my head. As the months passed I started getting worse. I ended up using a walker for about a month, then I couldn't walk. Now, I am in a wheel chair. I have been to a neurologist, he said neuropathy. He ordered a CT scan, I have disks that are protruding causing a nerve a nerve to be pinched. I went to a surgeon he said he can't do anything. Now back to the primary care he sent me back to the neurologist. I told him all my symptoms and he said he would refer one thing at a time, so he is making me wait for a second opinion to another surgeon. I now have complete incontinence. What should I do what do I have, they can't seem to figure it out or is it because they don't want to? My symptoms are: can't walk due to leg weakness, urinary incontinence.

  • If you didn't have complete incontinence before, that could be a very serious problem resulting from your hernaited disc. I worked in a neurosurgeon's office at one time. The one thing that I remember was a true emergency was people who lost bowel or bladder control who had disc problems. I would go to the ER ASAP!!
