Around one year ago I had ADR at C5/6, all there is fine. Just before my operation I started to get pain in my lower back, I had an MRI and CT which showed some wear to L5/s1 and the 2 discs above but they say it is not the source of the pain. I also had a discogram which was negative. Around 6 months later I started to get bad pain in my hips, both sides. It is a sharp stabbing pain. I also get cramp in my legs, hips and calfs. My legs feel heavy and now my left hip pops all the time when I raise my leg. My consultant cannot find the problem. To add to this and I dont know if this is relevant, I get bad cramp in my forearms when I flex my wrist back, plus I have 2 lumps in my forearm. All in all I am concerned they cannot find the problem! I dont know if this is my lower back or my hips or a more widespread problem.
