Oh please help-
All information/ experiences are helpful-
This is my story-
Essentially I was seeing an acupuncturist for a few old injuries, carpal tunnel and an old knee injury. I also had what i thought was a recent hamstring pull-
I told the Dr. about the Hamstring and he worked on that… after the 3rd session I came home and could not walk the next morning.
That was in the end of April. I am pretty much in constant pain that is all over my left leg. Sometimes my hamstring burns, feels like ripping/tarring. For about 2 weeks I had weird prickly feeling in the left bottom side of my foot, and back left side of my thigh. Then the left side bottom of my foot gets prickly and tight. I get a ruthless surge pain deep in my thigh if i sneeze, cough, gag. I brace my leg to get through them. Sometimes I have crazy tightness in the liniment (?) on the outer left side of the back of my leg that comes and goes like all the other pain.
I get very little relief getting off my leg laying, sitting, fully extending all hurt, and cause discomfort.
I went to the emergency room they were the worst. Said it’s not my sciatic nerve. That I just have a strain. BS.
I am able to walk with out aid most of the time, but not very far, and I’m limpy and in pain.
The tingling in my thigh and foot are less but they still don’t feel completely normal (heat makes them tingle.) I can’t stand for long, waiting in line- going to certain events is just not going anytime soon.
Please any sort of advice on relief aides, comfort techniques, exercises (I can bend over now, not completely and my knee’s bent, it used to be my favorite lease strength.) Dr’s web sites, patient groups-
I need help! I had to quit my job because J could stand, my insurance is in the process of switching over. I’m at a loss and feel like I’ll never get my health back!!!
Thank you for your time
