"electrical" zapping and pain in leg
First off, apologies, as I am having trouble explaining exactly what is going on , but I am wondering if anyone out there has experienced anything like what I am dealing with now - which is this awful pain in my leg, mostly below the knee, that feels as though I am being electrically shocked with a high voltage wire. The "shocks" come and go, but pain (deep) is always there.
Also having sever sensitivity in same area - light touch equates to extreme and deep pain.
Is this the nerves regenerating and healing? or dying off? temporary or permanent?
I'm about 4 weeks out from L4/5 discectomy (major herniations - about 1 inch squared) and 6 months out from L4/5, S1 laminectomy/discectomy. Just finished off a two week high dose stint on medrol (prednisone) with no effect what-so-ever, but now these electrical zaps are getting worse.
Thanks 4 input.
