about 3 years ago I took a nasty spill and landed down hard on my right buttock
I suffered w/ sciatica pain for about 2years. The specialist I saw told me I had likely pinched by L2 & L4 and that there wasn't much he could do for me, other than give me a shot of cortizone but that would require an expensive MRI and I am currently uninsured, so that wasn't an option. Nor was the expensive physical therapy he prescribed.
The pain has gotten a lot better over time, but since Halloween there's been an added symptom. A scary one.
Numbness on the left side of my body. It's not completely numb, but there's a considerable loss of feeling from my left ankle all the way up to the left side of my face and there's a little swelling on my left side as well.
Tonight is the 2nd time it's happened, both were after nights out dancing, so I'm wondering if my body just can't handle it anymore?
I typed my symptoms into XXXX and it says I'm having a stroke... But uh, I don't think that's accurate. lol
Do I need to be worried?
