I have now for some 9 months had a very numb right foot and severe pain from my back all down the outside of my leg.
GP sent me for an MRI scan which showed a disk pressing on a nerve in the C5 region and suggested a nerve root block injection, that I had 5/6 weeks ago.
Unfortunately that has not helped and seems to be actually worse now, I cannot stand for more than a minute without severe pain, I try to keep active by walking but that is also very painful.
Any suggestions regarding somethinf to help with the pain, I have tried Co-codamol 30/500 which does not help and I am unable to take Ibuprofen as it upsets my stomach.
It will be another 4 weeks before I see my GP about this, so any suggestions in the meantime would be appreciated.
