For about 5 days now, I have a pain in my leg, that is about to drive me insane.
It starts around my left hip and goes down my entire leg, all the way down to my foot.
The pain is constant, but when I strain, like coughing, sneezing, or using the bathroom ( even when urinating), the pain is so excrutiating, that I get nauseated.
My doc thought it was a muscle pain, but muscle relaxers made no difference. I have said from the beginning, it is a nerve pain.
The pain gets worse, not better. My leg also feels a little cooler, than the other one, but not to touch, just my feeling. I have a numb feeling in it, so there is constant pain, excrutiating pain and numbness.
This morning, my knee hurts, a joint pain feeling. But that could be from walking funny, because of the pain.
My next rheumy appt. is on the 15 th. I don't know if I can handle the pain until then.
The pain goes down the outside of my leg, it is my left leg.
Does anybody have this kind of nerve pain?
Please my friends, I need help.
I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).
