I have already posted this on the back forum but thought maybe someone here may have this or has experienced this in some way. I have problems with my left leg post op spinal fusion l4-s1 and I am ok with this since it is being treated etc.. However, my right leg, thigh and groin mostly has had 12/10 pain It literally feels like an extreme pressure is building up and is going to explode accentuated with a Very sharp pain as well. My Gen prac took xrays and says he see's nothing but did visually witness the pain in the form of Severe spasms in my thigh. I am just very concerned as to what this could be and I wonder if Any of you folks has had anything like this and what it was for you diagnoses wise. I am so quick to jump on the fact that I have had back issues and leg issues resulting from the back surgery on my left side. I am trying to keep my mind open and wonder what else other than my back that this could be (unless ofcourse it is my back causing this). I do have a follow up with my Back surgeon tomorow due to all of this. Sry for the long post I am just so anxious and hurting. I truly wish something is not wrong but at the same time I truly hope the Dr. will find something just so I dont have to hear the "well looks like all is ok, I am not sure what is wrong with you"....ugh I hate that remark.
Current medications: 20mg OxyContin LA x3 a day
150mg lyrica x3 a day
these meds where given for the leg pain and only for 10 days:
4mg dilaudid every 4 hours as needed
7mg Prednisone for a week x1 a day
350mg Soma 3x a day.
Thanks so much and God bless,
