Neuo asked if my fasics died down after I was on Lyrica. I said yes, and I also said "I figure they must be benign."
She nodded her head in agreement.

However, I have an issue where I feel the nerve in my left heel prickle when I make #2 in the toilet....occurs when I wipe that side, too.
SHe is ordering a lumbar MRI.

Hope there's no lesions....even though she never mentined MS.

Little nervous right now.

She was probably more worried about a lumbar disc issue. Instead of sciatic pain she may have been thinking of increased intra-abdominal pressure with passing stool aggravating a disc issue. If she were worried about MS, she would have ordered an MRI of your head, not your lumbar. Relax...

Results of the MRI came back normal, thank God.
