I am not haveing controlled pain. Had m. R. I. And 5 scans last week to no avail. I do have spinal stenosis in l4 and5... I cannot walk. How do I handle it..
Reginald, 1st off who wrote you those two prescription? Did your regular physician write those?
15mg of MS Contin & Lyrica?
I have to agree with kaismama here.
For I Guy that just had an MRI and 5 scans I don't think they diagnosed you probably.
I would go back to "a" doctor tell them about the 5 scans and the MRI you just recently had. Ask the doctor to read the test results in front of you and explain what's wrong with your foot & toe so you can understand it. If possible bring a friend or loved on, two sets of ears are better then one.
Finally, don't be afraid to speak up and tell this doctor, the medications that were prescribed before aren't working well enough. Also, until you can get to the doctor's office it wouldn't hurt to elevate your leg to minimise the pain & swelling.
Best of luck.
