back from doc

August 25, 2006 at 10:42 am

Just got back from the Doctor. He looked at my chart and my previous experience with Neurontin (seizures) and said Neurontin was not an option, as it would destroy my life (seizures will require doctors to take away Driver’s License, among other issues).

Doctor was not surprised at nerve pain in my legs. However, the back pain still stumped him. His current guess is that my two lumbar punctures (which went horribly) plus the following blood patch created some scar tissue that is affecting the nerves into the legs. He wants to wait a month and do another MRI (I had my last one about 4 weeks ago).

We’ll see. Thanks to all.
