ANYONE ELSE HAVING THESE LEGS PROBLEMS I'M HAVING? Please help me. I've been having leg problems,(all this started about 7/8 months ago).(Right thigh):numbness,tingling,pins and needles feelings. (Left thigh) is worse:Stabbing/jabbing like someone put a hot poker in my thigh and twisting it around inside,numbness,(I have NO feeling at all in my left thigh,I know this sounds stupid but I've put a cigarette lighter to it and felt nothing also have poked it and felt nothing)have tingling,also,like something is crawling on me, also sheets touching left thigh area hurts. The pain at times has dropped me to my knees.I was injured back in 4/2011, on my job, I was a teachers aide in Special Ed and 1 of my students attacked me , fracturing my back at the L4/L5/S1. since then, I have had 4 back surgeries due to fracture of my L4/ L5/S1.Fusions was done in that area,just recently found out by having a MRI in Oct/2017 that my back never healed properly,rods,screws,cage all out of line. They refuse to do another surgery on me to correct the problem,their response is I probably have to much scar tissue built up,I've read that scar tissue can't survve because it has no nerves? I also have been diagnosed with Chronic Pain,failed back surgery,Spinal Stenosis, Arschnoiditis(which is a rare complication from having multiple back surgeries and there is NO cure for that),Spinal Cord Damage, Rheumatoid Arthritis, (recently found out by a bone density scan) I also have Osteopenia/Osteoporosis Arthritis,from all of this I have major depression,anxiety/panic attacks,high blood pressure (which I didn't have before I was injured in my back), just wondering what needs or can be done for my newest duagnosis on my leg problems?
