I've had laminectomies for lumbar stenosis which were successful in getting rid of that awful tight/crampness in down the back of my right leg, along with the loss of feeling in my foot. That was mainly when standing still or walking slowly.
2 years on and the old feelings have returned in my other leg, along with some new stuff.
I'm getting hip/pelvis/abdmoninal pain and spasms, along with the most excruciating pains in my ankle, it feels like it is in a vice. The leg/ankle pain is worse when I am sitting or driving and when I get up from the chair, or out of the car, the first 4 or 5 steps are sooooo hurty. I feel as though I can't straighten my leg and hobble along like I'm an old woman (I'm only 44 3/4). It soon walks off but I dread having to stand up. The leg pain is the 'usual' sciatic pull all the way down the back of my leg - no-one understands!!!! Well, you guys do, that's why I'm here (again)!
I've had an mri done and the hospital have called me in early to get the results next week. I'm pleased I don't have the usual UK 6 month wait but it means that he's seen something that can't wait (sad face).
Has anyone else had this ankle pain and if so what was the diagnosis (too impatient to wait until next Tuesday)!!
