Pain Gone Numbness Continues
Hello everyone! I've been devouring spine-health for days now and like everyone here I too have been plagued by sciatica.
My pain started at the beginning of September on my right side with the typical symptoms of pain in the right butt cheek radiating down my leg to my foot. The pain was manageable and I just took it slow iced the pain and took some Advil. The pain wasn't getting any better but it wasn't getting any worse. I traveled out of town for the weekend and ended coming back home with a cold. Last Wednesday I was up hobbling around and I coughed and immediately felt a pop in my back and instant numbness in my right leg below the knee and into my heel and my 4 toes and outside foot... Typical symptoms. The pain was so bad I passed out and the paramedics came and saved me and took me to the ER. In the ER they gave me x-rays and an MRI and the results came back herniated disc L5S1 with some degeneration. They sent me home with Naproxen and Flexiril and told me to rest and it would get better. Well, here we are less than a week later and my pain is gone but my leg and foot are still numb which has me concerned. I have an appoint with my GP next week but I'm wondering if I'm over reacting and should just chill out!
Has anyone else experienced this numbness with no pain? Did the numbness ever go away? Kind of has me scared and a bit anxious!
Thank you for any insight.
