Hi, So I've made several posts reagarding my issue, I have prolapsed discs 2 to be exact; one pressing on my sciatic nerve which causes pain down my entire left leg and then just sits with pins and needles for hours on end. The other is between l4 and l5.
I've been waiting to hear from rheuatology now for several months, I've been back and they say I must await a letter with an appointment but in the meantime It's ruining my life, I've stopped going out with friends because it's far too painful and isn't worth the hassle and exaustion that comes with it.
I'm gaining so much weight because i'm just comofort eating and when I do eat heathly I eat too much of it, so as you can imagine the weight gain is also adding to the pain I feel.
I'm getting roughly 2 hours sleep in total a night because it's far too painful to lye down, my matress is in bad condition but since im in no shape to go back to work I cannot afford to replace it.
I do exercise but once i'm done i'm in more pain then when I started. I stretch both my lower back and legs, infact I strech all over, that's something I never used to do.
the medication I take no loner helps like it used to, and my Gp is not permitted to give me anything else because he's not a specialist.
I know I'm not the only one who is having some trouble living like this and I feel like i'm just moaning, well maybe I am, I'm probably just venting but does anyone know anything I can do to help?
any and all help is truly appreciated, I need to do something now before it ruins my life and my future.
