Hi judy

I can so relate to you frustration see post (hit the wall again need to vent). What you are describing could be nerve related pain from your spine. It may be simple in that you have bruised your lower back and caused inflamation in an around the vertebrae/discs/ putting some pressure on the sciatic nerve - hence the weakness and refreed leg pain you describe. If you have damaged a disc there are a range of options to explore prior to surgery. Try not to panic. If as your dr suggests the pain does not subside have the mri to determine eaxctly what has happened. Lets hope for your sake that its not seious and that you will be back on your feet in no time

all the best Losy
