Trapped nerve in leg? Worried...
Hi there hoping someone can offer some advice please.
About a week ago, I woke up with a really bad pain in my left leg, what felt like a trapped nerve. The pain eased throughout the day, but it was still really uncomfortable to sit down anywhere. Then it eased off and didn't come back. Today, I worked for a few hours sitting at the table, and when i got up, the pain was back. It's in the rear of my leg about halfway up my thigh, and the best way I can describe it is like someone pressing their thumb into my muscle.
I have been diagnosed with sciatica in the past, though this doesn't feel the same.
The only other odd thing is that for about a month, in my right leg, I've had the recurring sensation of spilling warm water down my calf, though I never have - it's a muscular thing I think, but it's so weird and there's no pattern to when it occurs.
If anyone can shed any light, that'd be great!
