Suggest treatment for sensory neuropathy in feet and calves
Features are suggestive of Sciatica.
Dear Ma am, Hi
I really appreciate your concern for the painful neuropathy apparently due to Sciatica.
The most common cause being a lumbar disc herniation directly pressing on the nerve, any cause of irritation or inflammation of the sciatic nerve can produce the symptoms of sciatica.
The piriformis muscle in the buttock can sometimes lead to irritation of the sciatic nerve. This is referred to as piriformis syndrome.
Since you have been given Inj corticosteroids in to the cauda equina with not much relief, I have the feeling that you must consult a neurosurgeon for further management which may include the following tests:
X-rays spine, CT scan, MRI scan, and Electromyogram used to further define the exact causes of sciatica.
Before taking a decision on surgical treatment you might be treated with Antidepressants like Amitryptiline with muscle relaxants.
Sometimes pain management specialists help with chronic sciatica conditions.
Bed rest has been traditionally advocated for the treatment of acute sciatica.
It is hoped that the suggestions given above could be useful in getting the right treatment with less adverse effects or complications.
Wishing you best of your health.
I went to a Pain Specalist (Like most, he was an anesthesiologist by training) I became addicted to methadone, OxyContin, deilaud, valium, fentanyl patches. You name it; I took it. I wound up loosing my mind, my home, my possessions, and nearly my life. It had taken 3 years to gain back my mind. I now have trouble walking even 10 minutes because of the pain, and I am very weak. I had been a very active touring cyclist, and even chairman of a cycling club in 2001-2003. The club had 5,000 members at that time. All was lost.
A neurosurgeon consultation is needed.
Welcome back to HCM.
It is unfortunate that despite of taking the most powerful analgesics like Methadone, Oxycontin, Fentanyl Patches and the antidepressants like Amitryptiline you still have the troublesome pain.
So, you may please visit the well known neurosurgeon of Bethesda.
Once again, wishing you best of your health.
