Hi everyone I recently started a post about how much PT before you couldn't handle it anymore. Thought I would start a new post because I have several questions. Since starting my PT I have been experiencing a lot more nerve pain in my legs along with the hot and cold sensations on my calf and foot. I am also getting severe stabbing pains in my back and when the Pt asked me to show her where I pointed exactly to the S1 area she said. This is a w/c case and my case manager was at my appt. today because I called her yesterday and told her of my symptoms getting worse like they were a couple months ago. I told them that I've not slept much the last few days because I can't lie in the bed for more than a half hour at a time again. I had sever foot drop for a few months and it had starting getting better and now its getting hard for me to hold my foot up again and I tripped over it twice yesterday. I asked them both point blank is this normal? And they could not give me a answer.... Have any of you had this happen so soon after starting therapy? I'm not sure wether to quit therapy before my symptoms get worse or try to hang in there and hope it gets better and deal with the pain. Many of you have posted that knowing when its the wrong kind on pain you should stop. And just muscle pain will ease up Well I know this is not muscle pain this is nerve pain and disc pain. And that pain received in therapy should be better by the next morning well mine is not easing up at all. Any advise would be great. Also want to mention that I was told that the therapy clinic I go to I was told they do the Mekenzie method and I found out today that they are not trained in it they just use a couple of the exercises!! And all my case manager wanted to know is am I making progress so I can go back to work light duty!!
If you made it this far thanks for reading this long post. Please any advise!!! ~X(
