So I'm waiting to get an MRI and see a neurosurgeon, but I don't see my general doctor until next Tuesday.
I've been having severe pain in my lower left back, radiating to my hip and left leg. I have scoliosis and apparently a bulging disc and DDD. I'm getting the MRI to see how 'bad' it all is.
My new question though, deals with sort of the opposite of pain. For the past few days I've had numbness in my left inner thigh and left groin/pubic area. It isn't completely 'dead' feeling, but it is sort of feels like I am touching it through layers of gauze. Kind of like when you get general numbing in your gums when you go to the dentist.
Someone told me that maybe the muscle relaxers I am on could cause it, but I read online that it might be a nerve getting blocked up or something. My knee reflex was fine though last week, so they acted like my nerves weren't being compromised. So it seems kind of weird. Just wondering about anyone's opinion.
