Hi fellow spineys!! I have disk protruding into my L2 & 3 nerve roots from the L2/3/4 area. Okay, that not withstanding, have any of you had *major* pain on the outer thigh and wrap around to the front of the thigh? I am asking as I've had neuropathic pain since last December, but more annoying than "painful". I took a nap today, and when I awoke, I feel like a huge stick is being pushed into my outer thigh, and as I walk, like a vice grip is on the front of my thigh (almost like the bone is being grabbed!) - very painful, and causing walking issues.
Sitting. If I sit 'jet' straight, not bad, but if I lean to either side that damn stick is right into my leg (outer, just below the hip). This is new, so no mention to my doctor. I am just wondering if I should wait it out (as a flare) or did something change in my sleep? Good grief. Any whoooosss.... thanks for listening.
