Dear Dr. Corenman,
Thank you for your reply, to answer your questions, the symptoms are the same with intensification, I was able to manage the pain for all those years with being on Fentanul 100mcg/hr and Gabapentin 600mg (3+ daily) but in the last 2-3 months, they have worsen to the point that driving for 30 min is so painful that without cruse control I would not be able to drive to work and back.
My work consist of siting down at a computer (Security Analyst job) which I have had to leave or not be able to do full days work lately.
The pain is in the lower back, buttocks and right leg, numbness, burning and sharp pain like something would be between the disk pressing with a feeling like pressure. Lately I’ve also been feeling tingling in my private area like if I’m close to ejaculation without be erected and that really worries me, does this mean that a nerve could affected?
I am seeing my Dr. tomorrow so that he can put me on short term disability in order to not put my job in jeopardy due to not being able to keep my concentration and performing as I should. I will also request a new MRI to be done for comparison to the 2009 one which I have a copy of.
You have no idea how good it feel to get a reply from someone who understands this medical issue and nice to get some feed back. I’d like to thank you for your time and feedback knowing how busy you must be.
