15 years ago I experienced severe pain on the right midsection of my back. It was so agonizing I couldn't sleep and would just lay on the living room floor. On my husband's urging, I saw a chiropractor who in turn sent me to a neurologist. He said I had sciatica. Not knowing what this was, I went along with his diagnosis.
At some point after this I began experiencing a burning pain between my legs and hip while sitting. I noticed at this point I also was left with what one doctor called a "sausage" on the right mid section of my back (between lumbar and throrasic area). Please forgive my spelling.
I am currently on Neurontin. I've had a hysterectomy, 3 diskograms, 1 mylogram, numerous MRI's, CT scans, too many injections to count, and there isn't a doctor who has a clue.
I do have a grade II spondo. All 3 diskograms and mylogram were negative and did not produce my current pain.
I also feel I have nerve entrapment of the Ilioinguinal nerve just as I read on your website. At this point I don't think I could repeat this story again to another doctor.
