    Did the doctor determine the cause of your back and leg pain?

    The back pain is herniated discs. She thinks the leg pain is from complex regional pain syndrome that I was diagnosed with four years ago from a foot surgery gone wrong.

    Are they scheduling surgery of any kind for the herniated discs? Can the surgery on the foot be corrected?

    No surgery even being talked about for back. The foot issue/ leg issue is from complex regional pain syndrome which cant be corrected surgically.
    After what happened to me last week, I am afraid to tell my dr and counselor that I have started popping the tylenol again. i just cant live like this, between the physical pain and the emotional pain.

    I would think that excessive Tylenol will eventually begin to cause other problems (liver, etc.). Why are they not exploring the possibilities of surgery for correcting the back? Have you sought out a second opinion at all?

    Hi there, I'm sorry you are in so much pain. I can relate somewhat, because my boyfriend is in chronic pain every day, I know how hard it can be to live every day life in day to day pain. I hope the medications help you out and if they don't make sure you go back to your doctor :hug:
