Hi just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this?? I had a microdiscectomy L5S1 9 weeks ago, I'm doing fine in the day occasionally get pain in day but can handle it, but when it come to going to sleep I wake up after a couple of hours in agony I can't move.. The pain runs around hip, lower back and down legs but more to my right side, it takes me forever to get out of bed and can't walk properly for the first 1/2 hour I can't even get up the stairs but then as the morning goes on I'm absolutely fine again! Can anyone please tell me what it is??? The doctors keep telling me to take pain killers at night but they are not helping at all.
