Just had my L4--L-5 microdensitometer on the 7ht.
I am absolutely miserable!
I am having so much pain in my upper legs ( hamstrings ) I can hardly walk.
The only relief I have if is laying down with a heating pad under my legs (hamstrings) I am also having spasms in the same area when I go to move my legs.
I am taking 10 mg Lortab every 4 hours and 1 5mg Val every 8 hours, now relief there.
I can barely make it to the bathroom or frig before the pain gets to be too much and I am back on the couch.
I sleep in bed at night but anytime I go to roll over or sleep on my side ( which is my natural position) I experience the same pains!
Is this a normal part of recovering? Most of my pre-op problems are gone, butt cheek burning and leg\foot burning.
But in many way this new pain is much much worse.
