I have two hurniated discs. My L4-L5 and L5-S1. My pain has always been in the lower middle of my back right above my tailbone. The pain always goes down my left leg and my toes are numb. I recently got an epidural injection in my spine. Ever since then I have new areas of pain. I now have pain on the right side of my butt cheek and on my tailbone. Both my legs go numb now and my legs hurt like they are going to break when I walk. I also cannot control my bladder very well anymore. I have spoken to my doctor about this but he didn't really have anything to say. I'm looking for a new doctor but just wanted to know if anyone has similiar problems.
