I've been having progressive problems for the last 3 wks. Started out with acute pain in my sacrum and lumbar below my L 4_5 fusion with legs going weaker. Then I lose control of my bladder. My legs have gotten even weaker. My left leg and foot are swollen. Then I became dizzy after sitting for more than 5 min and I am twitching and shaking. I go to the local ER 3 times in 3 weeks. They say "it's just your chronic pain", give me a shot of toradol and send me home. Yesterday I go to the county hospital, it's the only level 1 trauma center in town, spent 9 hrs there. They found that there is a compression in the "horsetail" area of the lower spine. Now I have to find a neurologist or neurosurgeon who takes Medicaid in Texas. This should be fun.
