I am in remission from Splenic Marginal Zone Lymphoma and had my last maintenance treatment with Rituxan two weeks ago. Since last fall I have been struggling with terrible low back pain and pressure all around the sacrum. This occurs at night in bed. My neurologist has ordered an MRI which has been denied by my insurance company. They require several weeks of rest and 6 weeks of physical therapy. I had over a year of rest and three weeks of physical therapy made me much worse, so we stopped. This week’s EMG showed severe irritation of the nerves coming out of the lower back. Just wondering if anyone else has issues like this and any advise. It’s so frustrating not to be able to treat something correctly because we can’t get an accurate diagnosis.
