I have been dealing with back problems since I was hurt at work in 2006. I was diagnosed with herniations at L1-L2 and L3-L4 and a annular fissure at L4-L5.
In February of this year, my back went out again, I don't know what caused it but the pain was terrible for a few months. It's starting to get better now but I have some new symptoms that are very painful. My left hip feels like it's cramping all the time. (my right side is typically where my sciatica was) If I lay on my left side for more than a few minutes the pain is soo intense I want to cry. I wake up a few nights a week with charlie horses in my left leg and if I sit too long, my whole left leg goes numb. My right leg is also affected but not more than it was before.
I was wondering if anyone could give their opinion as to what they think is happening to me.
Thanks so much.
