Hoping for some insight into my leg pain that is now going into my left leg after only being in my right leg for 2 months. The pain in my right thigh/ knee/calf and foot has been very severe (i'm pretty much house bound except for medical appts)As of yesterday, i started having symptoms in my left leg. The pain in my right seems to have changed too to mimic the new left sided pain: seems to have localized near the groin/buttocks area, on both sides.
I"m terrified of my left side becoming as worse as my right. I'm trying to minimize sitting/standing, and laying down with ice/heat, and taking tylenol and advil.
Does anyone know of anything else I could be doing to stop the left side from progressing, or is it pretty much out of my control?
Thank you for your help.
A diagnosis was never really officially given to me, but my MRI reports bilateral neural foraminal stenosis at L3-L4,spondylolisthesis at l4-l5, compression fracture to L1, facet joint osteophytes, annular tear/'broad based disc osteophyte complex bulging ( i don't know what this means...)
