I have become beyond desperate. I have never felt anything like this in my life.
For two straight days now my whole left leg has been constantly cramping. It just hasn't stopped. It will ease off for about 20 minutes and then it intensifies for around 10 minutes.
My pain medications are not working. I went to the emergency department last night and they gave me an injection to stop the cramping but not even that worked, they were also dumbfounded and wanted to put me on a morphine drip.
I am not getting any sleep as when the cramping intensifies it of course wakes me. If I stay in one position too long, the cramping gets worse (sitting, standing, resting)
I can hardly stand as when I try and straighten my leg the pain gets worse.
Last week I was diagnosed with Degenerative lumbar spondylosis with posterior disc bulges at the L4/5 and L5/S1 level with associated spinal canal stenosis. The pain medication has eased the pain in my back but it's doing absolutely nothing for my leg.
I just don't know what to do any more, I think I'm going crazy!
