~X( Hello, I am wondering if any of you out there could help me out. I got hurt at work in 2006, work injury. I have had all different types of treatment.
I have had chiropractic care(still trying), injections, physical therapy and also IDET(non invase surgery).
I am told that I have a disk herniation at l5 s1, and it is pressing down on my nerves. I am at my last rope here. I have newer problems everyday. I have severe weakness in my legs, pain like cramping, back pain.
I sometimes fear that I will wake up and not be able to walk because of my legs. I have this problem in both of my legs, front and back.
I am also starting to have weakness in my arms, not sure if this goes along with this. I have not seen a neuroseurgon yet due to a big issue with comp.
I am at the point that the insurance company wants to settle, big MESS.
I am wondering if all of these symptoms could be part of my disk herniation?! Sorry that I can't go into complete details on the comp thing, but if anyone wants to private message me with questions about that, it would be great.
