... and L2. I had two epidural steroid injections but continue to have pain and issues. My right leg hurts all the way down to the toes and has painful swelling. Is this a normal occurrence of this condition or should I notify my doctor?
Welcome to the club. lol... It is totally natural to have that pain, its sciatica. Has the dr put you on gabapentin? Its probably the only thing that makes my life tolerable. It decreases the pain somewhat. My pain dr did shots of an anesthetic like novacaine into the nerves and that helped for a short time but its back again.
