Question pain and numb right leg when laying or sleeping in bed

Hi all my first time here.

If I lay flat on my back I get pain in the lower back and my right leg will go numb and if I lay on my tummy it hurts me lots too. I have had it for a good few years and its seems to be getting worse, told my doc a long time ago to and he has done nothing for me. but he has sent me to a consultant for me to have surgery on my right knee, very worried now because I will have to be on my back for the op and its going to hurt my back together with the numb right thigh. Can any tell me if they know what it could be as my right leg will go numb in bed when lying on my right side to and it starting to get to me as I end up waking up most nights.

Thanks all hope to here from you soon sorry to go on and on.

You might try laying on your back and putting 2 pillows under your knees or lying on your side with a pillow between your legs to see if that helps.

It sounds like it is time to have your leg checked out and that you are dealing with sciatica nerve problems.

Good luck and keep us posted. We care.

Re: pain and numb right leg when laying or sleeping in bed

Dink,
I had 2 spinal fusion and I am awaiting to heal and than I need another knee surgery (I had 2 previously).
The reason I am telling you this is: they usualy don't do knees if they know your core (spine) is not doing good. My knee surgeon told me that even if they do knee surgery and it will be a sucsess, if I still have spinal problem my knees can go bad again due to weired walking and putting more pressure on them. When you have back pain usually most of us tend to walk in a funny way to protect our backs.
So I would definitely check my back first, find out what exactly is wrong and than fix your knees. What you describe can be spinal nerves related. I have my nerve pain in a legs and feet worse when I am in bed. Sometimes not, but most of the time same symptoms as well.

Best of luck to you
