After having laminectomy and fusion of T11-L6, for unstable scoliosis, I had neuropathic pain over my left sacroiliac (SI) area, so sensitive fabric touching it hurt. I had s surgery to replace loose screws and removal of a cyst at L5 causing sciatica. Now I have permanent sciatica down my left leg, SI joint to the heel. The doctor doesn't acknowledge sciatica - no problem although the pain can be excruciating. Pain over SI area now feels like an abscess. I don’t know what I can do to get help for this situation.

I experienced a severe closed head injury that left me unconscious for around an hour. Crushed right brachial plexus, discovery of degenerative disc disease in lumbar, thoracic, and especially cervical, and stenosis. It led to an open brain surgery with no effects. I had and ischemic stroke, 16 operations, 11 to save my right arm after being disabled in an assault overseas. Numbness in my arm and back has eased but, I suffer a deep core soreness and 24 hours a day, 7 days with burning pain like fire. I have been through 5 neurologists, 7 orthopedists, and tons of tests.

I have neuropathic pain. It's not so bad when I'm up and about, but trying to sleep is almost impossible.

I have severe neuropathic pain in legs and feet, so bad at night I cannot sleep. The pain in the day time is not as bad. I hate to see bed time for the pain.
