I am writing this while up at 2am rolling about in pain and none of my pain relief seems to work so was hoping for some advice and just others to talk to in my situation.
I was diagnosed with this after a boot camp injury nearly a year ago. My MRI showed damaged to L4/L5. I have had my first nerve root block injection which I thought was improving and then I went back to square one and worse! Next one due end of this month.
I am also taking pregabalin (lyrics) diclofenic, codeine, ibuprofen, paracetamol, and did have some oromorph too! As well as Ice packs and heat...
I am a nurse and it has got so bad that it's affecting my work too. I am now struggling to sleep at night with it.. Hence the message now!
Do you think, even if it is a smaller disk prolapse, that they may be able to do something else if the 2nd nerve root block doesn't work?
Thanks in advance
