I am beyond frustrated and feel like I’ve hit the end of my rope pain wise. It’s now been over 6 weeks since my RFA and I feel like what little relief I had a few weeks ago has ended and now I’m sliding back into my old pain. This was a bad week both pain wise and with work and I’ve just been in an awful mood. Even at pt he knew I was hurting bc I sat on ice and had ice massages in between the few stretches I could force myself to do. I just dont understand how I had much better relief with the nerve block than I did with the RFA.
Am I still in the healing stage? Will the pain lessen? I feel like it won’t and I’m just frustrated at this point. I go back to see my doc in April since that was the first available appointment and I feel like my body will give out before than. I’m having worsening pain in the front hip bone on my right side which is something that has never given me an issue up until a few weeks ago.. The pain is in my bone and it makes it nearly impossible to go up or down steps without having to stop every few steps. And sitting is still impossible bc if my left si pain which is where my normal pain is located.
The pain shooting down my leg was getting better and was only shooting into my thigh whereas before the rfa it was shooting to my toes. Now it’s starting to shoot down below my knee again and my foot tingles all the time again...like I said, my symptoms are worsening again. I have no motivation anymore to do anything other than work bc of the pain and fatigue. This has been such a long road and I feel like there’s no end in sight especially with new symptoms popping up! I just need to vent bc I feel like everyone around me is sick and tired of hearing it. And as sympathetic as everyone is I’m just tired of it all! I just want to feel normal again!
