Quote from modrijan:Please correct me if I don't understand you right. Back and leg pain: Impigned nerve sounds logical if frozen means to you non-respondding, numb. Even true cold feeling could appear. Try this: lye down and lift your streched left leg up toward vertical. Feeling pain in the leg during this is highly suggesting for impigned nerve. MRI is diagnostic.
Vein thrombosis would cause feeling cold, pain, swelling or palor in one or both legs even with palpable pulses. But I doubt that thrombosis would stay unchanged through many years. Symptoms would also be worse during the day. Coagulation blood tests are diagnostic.
Multiple sclerosis came on my mind, but before going too wide...if you want to talk about it further you could tell us what your abd. surgery was about and if you have had some back investigations so far.
