I have a herniated L5. It has been 11 months since I had the first MRI to confirm it. I have had a caudal epidural block that made me worse for several weeks therefore I did not want to have another. This week I had a steriod injection that hasn't helped yet. I'm still waiting and praying. What I would like to know is, has anyone had opposite side symptoms. My disk is herniated towards the right but I have left side sciatica with pain that radiates to my foot. My left big toe has also been numb sense day 1. I have good days and bad days. I also have tingling in both feet, which of course the left one seems worse. HELP!!!!!!
