My mother developed nerve pain in her lower back down her leg and knee into her feet about 3.5 years ago after slipping on oil in the health food store. She used her body professionally in her life since 9 years old, so to see her with a cane suffering with pain daily and not being able to walk well is EXTREMELY difficult to witness.
She has had about 3 denervation procedures to burn the nerves. Obviously, it has not made the pain go away. I don't know if it helps.
I don't know what to do. I am an only child and I don't know what to do.
I also see a change in cognition. Not much. She had a dementia test and came out great! But, there are changes. She had 3 strokes (small ones; ischemic) about 6 years ago. She sometimes gets fixated on small things that "don't matter." She is supposed to use her CPAP machine because she has severe sleep apnea but doesn't!
I need support!!!
