Her office w CSF.She told me I was high risk and she wouldn’t touch my spine,but would help me w the pressure in my neck.I got 10 steroids shots and she told me I would feel better in a couple of weeks.I hate to tell you but I feel worse.I can’t sit or stand for a period of time and my feet and body have so much pain I. them.It feels like sometimes pins and needles and other ti
Es numbness in my spine and hands.I truly don’t know what to do anymore.Im lucky I can work because of the neck wrap and Lyrica.I just wish I could get some answers.Should I go see a Rheumatologist or should I go out of my network to find a doctor who specializes i. CSF leaks.Sorry so late my need someone who understands this illness
