I have had 3.5 yrs of left sided pain in the buttock , left hip radiating down the back of my left leg into my foot. An xay showed degenerative changes at L5, MRI of L spine showed L3-4 disc bulge. One year ago I also found out I had a left side 7cm fibroid (subserosal). I had a fibroid embolization done and it has shrunk to 5.5cm in a year. I have tried everything from accupuncture, shiatsu, rehab pilates, cranial sacral work, physio, osteopathy, orthotics, and nothing helps very much.Any suggestions??
