Would like members thoughts on this.
Slightly compressed L5 nerve and I'm doing everything my pt recommended . For months when initially standing up after sitting or lying down, my big toe would get a rush of pins and needles feeling for a minute and then go back to very lightly numb.
I say numb, but not really numb, I call feel it but known something isn't right . Anyways , been writing down how everything feels to track progress and just realized the initial rush of nerve sensation is not there anymore. I just have a constant feeling in my big toe and the area that something isn't right but I can still feel it.
Does this make sense? Anyone experience this and if so, is that am improvement or decline? My calf pain isn't as bad.
