Can anyone shed some light on what's happened? I'll start from the beginning:
I work in a hospital and was stood at the side of a patient who was about half my size. To get to a more suitable position as them, I went to kneel down. As soon as my knee touched the floor, a blinding pain shot up my leg, up my spine, and into my neck. It then settled in my lower back and hasn't gone away. I then lost sensation in my legs and slumped to the floor. After a few seconds, I managed to get to my feet and hobbled to A&E, with the pain not going away. They eventually saw me, gave me some painkillers, and sent me home. After taking co-codamol and naproxen, the pain is less but still there.
What I'd like to know is, what's physically happened (e.g. Is it nerve damage or something else), and has this happened to anyone else?Welcome to Spine-Health
