I had my CT/Myelo for my lumbar and cervical spine last Wednesday . I came home and went to bed, but when I woke up later that day, I noticed EXTREME, rubbery feeling numbness on the outside of my left hip joint. I thought it may have been an effect of the dye injection, so I waited until Thursday, and called my NS, whose assistant told me it was probably nothing to worry about, but if it continued next week, talk to the NS about it during my follow up next Wed.
The following day (Friday) I decided to double check with the radiologist to make sure it was "normal", but they said it was a new one, they had never heard anything like that happening.
Soooo, I did what most people did, I googled it... but the answer I got from my NS and what they say online were two different things, so I decided not to worry, and wait. Well, yesterday, I noticed it was spreading down my leg, and today its reached well into my thigh, just in a line (starts out over the hip joint, pretty large area, but narrows as it travels down my thigh)
This is really freaking me out, I can stick a pin through my skin and feel NOTHING. Even though I have multiple locations that get numb, tingling, etc, I have never had this kind of numbness for so long.
Sorry this is so long, but I'm curious, has anyone ever had anything like this happen? Could it be from a misplaced needle during the dye injection?
It's crazy, when you have as many problems as most of us do, every little thing becomes more of a reason for us to worry, and I am truly tired of worrying! ~X(
