My symptoms began a year and a half ago. I had Sciatica pain, foot drop and foot tingling – all on left side. Physical therapy greatly improved the foot drop and pain was gone after 2 months. But tingling has spread – it's now in both hands, arms, legs and feet.
MRIs have shown I have disc degeneration and herniated discs in both neck and lower back. Before the arms started tingling, I had seen surgeon who recommended surgery. I have not done that and I'm concerned about permanent nerve damage. Will this get worse? Will that prevent me from doing normal things – like driving or holding things?
Thank you for any information you can provide!
