Very weird pain in right quad

This is a weird one. Been fused for 5 years l4/l5. If I fall asleep flat on my back, I wake up with an extendible electric burning pain in my right thigh. It feels like someone is carving the meat off to the bone with a cattle prod.

If I start to try and roll over, it amplifies X10. My wife helps me roll off my back. From there it burns like fire for the rest of the night.

This used to happen in a small area down by the knee. It's now my entire thigh from hip to knee. I can't lay on that side any more. At times, the shower water hurts. Even clothing hurts. I report this to my docs and nothing is investigated further. It's new and it's very scary when it happens. You holler out when it happens.

Any body else suffer with something like this?


  • How long has the pain been going on?
    Is it always only the right side?
    Any rash? Any other changes in appearance/temperature/etc to that side?
    When you say "I report this to my docs and nothing is investigated further" what exactly do you mean? Are they completely ignoring that you are speaking, or have they responded, just not done further testing?

    Beyond that, I'm sorry you are hurting.
