Result of Lumbar MRI -
-santral hernia at the L4-L5 disc which is narrowing the spinal canal and pressures the cauda equine roots
- diffuse bulgings at the L3-L4 and L5-S1 discs.
Have taken, ibuprofen, panadol extra, co-proxamol and received one caudal epidural injection (Dr Cyriax method) of triamcinolone acetate (40 mg) plus bupi vacaine + SF + 2am ilcuglort.
None of the above drugs or procedures have relieved the agonising pain. I have not slept more than 1 hour a day over the last 3 weeks and I am in total agony. The Dr has now suggested that I adminster Synecthen Depot (1 ampule a day) however when I looked up the side effects of this drug, and the occassions it should be used, I am wary about taking it. Can anyone who has had this condition please tell me a drug that I can take that will relieve this pain.
