Today I felt a like a snap or a pop sensation in my lower back and instant pain shooting to my right foot. I nearly fell and I felt an adrenaline rush from the intensity of the pain. I have burning pain in my back and muscle spasms in both thighs. I have had sciatica develop in both legs now, and I don't know if this is new. My NS told me last time it was part of my old problem. I don't quite understand. I was asked if I needed to go to the ER, and I decided to wait and see. If It gets worse, I'll consider. I'm trying to distract myself, but I already cried all day.
I had a TLIF/Laminectomy over 5 months ago and I still struggle with constant back and nerve pain. I don't know what to do
