I will try to update on my life this past year of pain. I have nerve pain in my right hip and now is going to my left hip. I have to sit on ice 24/7. I have been xrayed, MRI, poked and now I can't drive or do anything but stay in the master bedroom cuz it is easy to get to the bathroom. I can't get my doctor to listen to me. He just sent me to a hip doctor. This doc saiid there isn't anything wrong with the hip. You need to see a spine surgeon. You have L4-L5 disk ccompressing ôn your sicatic nerve. I have had injections inn September. It didn't work. So yesterday I called my ddoc and asked to be referred to Dr.R. I have heard nothing from him. I don't know what to do. I do know that I will be getting a new doc. I have SUFFERED for over a year. I want my life back. I am tired of crying in pain.
