hoping someone can help i injured my back october 2010 and was diagnosed with a lumber disc prolapse between L4 nd L5 i then had a car accident makin things considerably, along side the obvious lower back pain i have chronic leg pain down the back of my right leg nd down the front of my right thigh. towards the middle of 2011 i developed a problem with my bladder, not being able to start to urinate, leaking considerable amounts after urination and loosing full control, i was sent to a specialist spinal unit who did tests for cauda equina syndrome, some of the physical tests pointed to a positive diagnosis but after a mri scan they ruled it out, i went through this twice the second towards the end of 2011 on this occasion they told me my prolapse had reduced. this threw a spannet in the works as i was still having the chronic pain, and the problems with my bladder, at present im still in the same ammount of pain in leg and back, and still have the problem with my bladder if anything this is worse, and i have no answers from anyone, i have tried physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, acupuncture, steroid injections and nothing has helped if anything somethings have made it worse. my current medication is 52.5 mcg/ph buprenorphine, 900mg gabapentin 3 times a day, and laxatives for constipation caused by my meds. im so confused to what could be wrong, and no one seems to have an answer. sorry for the long post just wanted to put the full story so maybe someobe might have some answers.
many thanks in advance
