In January I ruptured a disc in my lower back (l4-5). After 3/4 months of misdiagnosis I had an MRI privately and found out I had a mild bulge. This has been on going for ten months now, since my accident I have been getting weird feelings in my legs ( it's hard to explain) but I have looked into RLS and that pretty much explains the feeling I get. my doctor always puts me on tramadol and co codamol to help deal with the pain In my lower back so at night time I wasn't noticing the tingling feeling too much and I was able to get to sleep and sleep through it. Yesterday I stopped taking my medication as I noticed blood coming from my anas (sorry not sure how to put that nicely) and I think this could be from the medication. it is now 6.30 in the morning and I have not managed to get to sleep due to the weird sensation in my lower legs(calves) I read somewhere it is very uncommon to get RLS from a back incident. So does anyone know what it is that I could possible have and what I can do to treat it as I do not want to be on medication for it for the rest of my life or is this something that eventually goes away?
