I decided while writing this to actually seek medical help, right away! I don't good insurance, so this has been a ride!
I do have a question for everyone, which might help me better explain what is going on when I actually go in...
First off, I have been having leg pain all the way down to my feet for months. I have narrowed it down to something in my lower back region, and for the past 10 weeks or so I've been able to manage the pain with stretching and increased exercise.
However, in the past week the pain has slowly been building up. This morning it finally hit me like a large brick out of nowhere. I couldn't get out of bed!
From about 5am until noon I could hardly move, I took the usual dose of advil; no luck.
Here's where it gets weird, I had some vicodin left over from some dental work not too long ago so I took one hoping it would get rid of my pain.
and it did, a little too fast and a little too well. I'd say within 10-20 minutes and I have -NO- pain what so ever! I can still feel an IMMENSE amount of pressure in my lower back which is really concerning me. I know whatever is causing the problem is still there, however it feels like someone turned a light switch off. I'm not complaining about feeling no pain, This just doesn't seem right at all...The amount of pressure I feel when doing the same things that made it hurt so bad is kind of "freaking me out"...Giving me the heebie jeebies or whatnot.
Has anyone had an experience like this? I'm kind of wandering what I might be facing, and hopefully I can visit the doctor with a few suggestions.
Thanks for any input!
