always in pain
I have herniated disc in t11-12,t12-l,t12-l1,diffuse disc in the rest of lumbar spine, lumbar and cervical radicultis, cervical narrowing. My back,neck,arms,leg,hip always hurt. Walking,sitting ,moving seams to flare it up more. On fmla but about to lose job,they want to do a medical seperation. Two drs say surgery. But I have kaiser. They say keep with the cervical and lumbar epiderol injections, take your gabapentin , and pain meds. It's been almost a year,I have no life,I've been suicidal. Dr just ignores what I say. I struggle even on light duty, as I work for city gov and can not take pain meds at work, so some days I sit at my desk holding back my tears and then drive home to lay down,and suffer threw the night. The electrifying shooting pain is the worst, most times I feel as if I'm sitting on a hot grill.
