    Brief Medical History Overview

    Herniated Disc L4-L5 and now thigh/knee pain?

    Physical Agents In Rehabilitation
    Hi

    I'm 24 years old and have worked in an office for 8 years, I have 2 children - both normal pregnancies/deliveries.

    About two years ago, I started with severe lower back pain. Was sent for an Wikipedia reference-linkMRI scan which showed the disc between L4-L5 had shrunk and herniated, which caused it to press on a nerve, hence the back pain. For this problem I was referred to physiotherapy which I have been attending for around 6 months now. The back pain is still severe, if not worse than when I started the physiotherapy.

    I used to get a tingling sensation in my shin and a light cramp in my calf, which was put down to the nerve being pressed.

    Over the last few days I have had a really intense pain in the front of my left thigh and the back of both knees. It is difficult to walk and extremely painful. My left leg just feels totally weak.

    I don't really understand what is going on but i'm getting really frustrated because I am struggling to carry out day to day tasks and depending on people around me alot more. If anybody has any ideas to what this thigh pain problem is or pain relief, I would be truly grateful.

    I really am at the end of my tether with it all and have little faith in the doctor as he seems to fob me with co-codamol/ibruprofen/diclofenac sodium - none of which work.

    Sorry for rambling but I am trying to give you as much information as possible.

    Thank you in advance

    Emma

    You need to see a specialist spinal surgeon or physician. The pain in the leg is reffered from the entrapment of the nerve. This must be assessed correctly in order to decide on the most appropriate treatment. Ask your GP to refer you ASAP.

    Thankyou sportsdoc, I'll make an appointment with my GP and ask him to refer me - he did say if physio didn't help I would be referred to a spinal surgeon?

    We recommend the Physio Shop - www.physioshop.co.uk
    Hi guys,

    I visited my GP yesterday evening and he has run out of treatment ideas, he agrees that the pain has gone on for long enough and referred me to a Neurosurgeon who will decide whether to operate or not. I understand surgery is not always the best way forward but we shall see what happens.

    Thank you for your input.

    Kindest regards

    Emma
