Im 32 yrs & besides several car accidents which have taken a toll on me,I've lived a physical demanding & busy life w/o complications other than migraines triggered after an accident in 07.
Til October of '14.
I woke up 1 day after a long period of sleep and experienced an ache & pain in what felt like my groin area only for 5 days. It then went away on its on.
I noticed with weeks following, I began tripping over my right foot (Foot Drop), soon eliminating my abilities to run unless I wanted to eat dirt, so to speak. By November I noticed weakness, loss of mobility, strength & full functionality in my right foot,toes ,ankle, knee & upper thigh including my right hand (couldn't light a lighter, hold a fork or turn car on unless used entire hand, cupping keys to turn ignition). Mind you, im right handed. After 3 months I regained full strength in my right hand yet i still continue to experience Pins ^ needles in my right arm + now, newly along my left arm & hand.
Ive had a CT, 2 MRIS & as of this past Thursday, my neurologist conducted my EMG. He informed me surgery isnt necessary. Seems I've injured myself during my night of over extended sleep w/o movement therefore causing a *partial compression to my sciatic nerve*. Im in no pain but can barely walk. Im looking at physical therapy w/recovery time est. Between 8weeks-18months.
Anyone experience this disabling issue?
