L5-S1 Nerve "Irritation"-Now what?
My EMG has shown 'irritation' at L5-S1, that is 'old'-according to my surgeon this irritation goes back to BEFORE my surgery! He wants to try steroid injections-tried them with ZERO success. If the current med regime doesn't help within the next couple of weeks, he wants to start me on Lyrica. Has anyone taken Lyrica before and if so was it helpful?
I feel SO mad!! I went thru a L2-S1 spinal fusion-with ALL the recovery crap that goes with it, only to be BACK in the same painful place I was before!! GRRRRRRR :-((((
