Can't walk for long - tired of this!
Hi everyone....I am experiencing horrible pain in my left leg (and have been off & on for several years now). The pain is in my left hip - which has swelling in the area at times - left knee, shin area & left ankle. If I am on my feet walking (such as grocery shopping) for 45 min to 1 hour, the pain is so bad I can hardly walk and can't wait to get off my feet. It eases a bit when I sit or lie down but depending on the position I'm in, my left leg has this deep, dull pain. I have to take Darvocet at night on the weekends (can't take during the week because of getting up early) just to have an uninterrupted night of sleep.
I also have pain in my left shoulder / neck area and have previously had numbness in my left hand & leg at times. Have had mri's, brain scans, x-rays and nothing really shows up - one mri result reads something about "perivascular space...." but dr said everything was normal.
Anyone have anything similar to this or any suggestions? I'm 40 years old and have been diagnosed with a ruptured disc if that contributes to any of this!
