I am suffering with poor sleep due to pain in my hips and legs. I had a Tlif July 18th and it did resolve the Right sided pain, but I wound up with a new problem with left leg pain. I am currently at a consistant pain level of 6-7 a day. I am doing PT also.
I find that even with my pain medication and sleep medication my pain breaks through and wakes me up. I have pillows under my knees and elevate my knees when sleeping on my back. I woke up almost every 2 hours last night with leg and hip pain. It seemed like my whole body weight was on my hip, then when I switched sides it happened on the other side. All night. I am exhausted from this. I need some help. I spend my day fighting being exhausted from not sleeping.
I plan on asking my doctor when I go again. I take lyrica for nerve pain, narcotic and rx sleeping meds. I am at a loss why the pain is kicking my butt.
