Hi everyone, I haven't had anything done yet but I just wanted to get my story out there for now. Any words of encouragement would be appreciated. I took a bad fall on the ice on January 3, went up in the air and landed on the back of my head. The CAT scan did not show any problems other than a huge hematoma on the back of my head. Nothing else seemed to be hurt. About a week after the fall I noticed that my right heel was numb, then it went to the bottom of my foot being numb, my toes and then tingling all through my leg. I really didn't do anything about it because there was no pain and I figured it would work itself out. Within the last several days all of these symptoms have spread to my left leg so now I have it in both legs. My back is very painful and I walk around like I have a dozen of eggs sitting on my back. The situation has snowballed immensely within the past few days. I cannot imagine the extent of the injury and why it took so long to manifest itself. I am laying here on my bed with a pillow under my knees. That's about the only way that I can lay. I have an MRI scheduled for 8 o'clock in the morning. Thanks for listening.
