Well I had injection 2months back and I still had some nerve pain . So went to doctor and am on gabatine which helps a lot .... so I went back to work and done 3 shifts and am I feeling it from me back to down me leg .

Also I went back to hospital and have got to have another mri scan as the consultant as said . That now I have a option another injection or a operation.

I am still at work coz I have to work , 4 hour shift is all I can do and then do nothing rest of me day.

I have a swollen knee which I had for awhile and am wondering if that's to do with the nerve problem.????

I am no way as bad as I was at the beginning of this awful journey but still have nerve pain down me leg .....

Pushed my self to hard ended up in emergency theatre two disc has ruptured in my back . Nearly 4 year on havnt been able to return to employment. Awaiting another operation in may. I have tried just about every none invasive treatments but to no avail . I am hoping the spinal fusion really works, I know I'll never get bck to what I was due to my fibromyalgia degenerative disc diease and hyper mobility. But if I can do a desk job a few hrs a wk that would be great
