leg pain and numbness when lying down
after numerous surgeries and fusions, i have a new problem. when i go to bed or lie on couch, my right leg will go to sleep and i will get pain from the back down to the hip on the right side also it is so bad it wakes me up at night and my leg is so numb, i can't move it. i have to shake leg for about 10 minutes then it will get feeling back. my leg really hurts and it continues until the day time. i will call ortho today to get feedback and maybe an injection but this just started and it has been about a year since my last fusion
I have 4 fusions from L5-3, the latest last May '12 where they fixed my disc that broke.They went through my side this time. I take 40 mg of oxycontin 4x a day and 4 fenatyl lollipops 300 micro gms 4x a day.
