My vanity seems to have led me here.
About 2 weeks ago, I had a small cyst removed from my right shoulder.
A local anaesthetic (Lidocaine I was told) was injected around the site.
I was a bundle of nerves, as I had never gone under any knife before, but, this was bothering me for some time, so I decided to get it removed. Afterwards, I passed out from nervousness, and when I came to, my right ankle was throbbing from pain, but apparantly I passed out while sitting on a chair.
A few days went by, when one morning I awoke to sharp "muscle" pain ONLY in my RIGHT hip and buttock area. It hurt so bad I couldn't move without wincing from pain.
It's been over a week now, and 2 days ago I noticed a dull ache on the front of my right shin area of my leg.
Now, I STILL have the pain in my right hip/butt.
I was told by my Dr. to take Ibuprofen along with a muscle relaxant at night.
I've been stretching, taking epsom salt baths, applying heat and muscle relaxing creams, but to no avail.
COULD THIS SUDDEN "SCIATIC" PAIN BE RELATED TO THE LOCAL ANAESTHETIC I RECEIVED ON MY RIGHT SHOULDER AREA 2 WEEKS AGO???? The pain did start after I had the minor procedure done.
Can anyone else out there in cyberland relate to this?
