I finally saw pain management Dr on Monday Jan 23.. Come to find out, I have been diagnosed with lower back arthritis.. My lower back will lock up daily with numbness and tingling down lower back into buttox.
They want me to try 3 injections, 3 months. My surgeon never told me I had arthritis. I do have narrowed left faranium L5-S1. St.Francis hospital has golf carts that take you from parking garage right to pain management on 4th floor... Very useful especially when you can't walk long distance..
The Dr has no answer for my numbness in lower back or locking up.. I drop down to knees in pain.. Have groin pain also. I saw my uroligist to rule out kidney stones. Something not right in lower back..
