Nothing has helped. Although epidural steroid injection helped a little. I also have a torn meniscus behind the effected knee/leg so Drs dont know if pain is attributed to that or stenosis and bulging disc. I have seen a neurosurgeon and will see a spine orthopedic dr in 3 weeks. I just dont know what to do anymore tired of living in pain!
