I have had sciatica, including numbness in my feet, leg and pain for 7 months. I finally saw a registrar yesterday, presumably the consultant was busy! after explaining my MRI scan and why I am in pain, I was then told there was nothing that could be done. Nothing! Not putting too fine a point on it, I broke down! I had already told the doctor I wasn't coping and that I couldn't live like this anymore. So was a little bit shocked at her attitude. I am ready to pack it in altogether, how are people supposed to live in this much pain without any kind of relief. She didn't offer me any treatment, any pain relief, just physio, which I already had been too and told there was nothing more they could do! Has anyone any idea's or recommendations as to where I go now?Before I go totally mad!
Any help will be very much appreciated.
