Question:

Severe Pain on Left Ischial Tuberosity

I've had this pain for 5 yrs. it's changed my entire life. I've been to 23 dr, PT, CP, Orthopedic. Now pain management. I was on a high dose of opioids, but they did not touch this pain. Numerous injections absolutely nothing has made the pain any better. Other than laying on my right side all day everyday. Does anyone have any other suggestions? Can any type of surgery be done? Pain pump? I can't even drive or ride in a car for more than 15 minutes without crying, pillows still feel like I'm sitting on a brick. My hamstring is fine it's just the ischial tuberosity. I'm really at my wits end here, if anyone has a nurse or a doctor they may ask for advice please, I'm asking you please ask them for me! Thanks in advance

The history suggests you have extremely severe pain on left ischial tuberosity. You are unable to sit for more than few minutes and may be walk for a short distance. You have tried all treatment options except pump. You probably had all radiological studies such as MRI, CT Scan and X-Ray. I would suggests you should consult an experienced Pain Specialist who is board certified Pain Management. The diagnosis of cause of pain is important. In most cases removal of cause removes chronic pain. Pain pump is a last option of treatment of chronic pain. The pain pump is considered when all treatments have failed and you are not addicted to opioid. Pain pump is expensive and safe. Please consult a pain specialist for further investigations and options of treatment. Only few pain specialist are experienced in management of pump patients. Make sure the pain specialist does manages chronic pain using intrathecal pain medications delivered by pain pump and has more than 25 chronic pain patients with pain pump.
