Where do i begin??

I have been extremly stressed out marriage breakup had to give up my flat move back with parents!! During this time i have kept myself busy not eating properly and hardly sleeping.

On the process of moving i hurt my back i picked a box up and i felt something pull, i continued to move things didnt rest etc.
Approx 4 weeks ago i hurt my back again this time moving a water cooler i walked about hunched up for a couple of weeks, then started getting weakness in my left leg felt like it was heavy, tired and when i was walking i felt i was dragging it. I went to a&e who said they thought i had sciatica which causes weekness, pins and needles etc all the things i did have however i have now been to the hospital 5 times nobody seems to be able to help me. The pain in my back is moving from the left to the middle and is now above my right hip. and the weekness has left y left leg and is now in my right leg i feel like i am dragging my leg to walk and i cannot walk any distance and esp not unaided. My feet are now swollen obv caused be me4 not walking as i have practically been in my bed since wed. On wed i went to see a phsio who massaged my back and cracked it he explained that i had damaged my spine and he has put it back where it should be however it wants to go back to where it was comfy!!!! i dunno if going to him has caused more problems.

I was meant to move house on thursday and i cant i am totally stressed out living here i dont get on with my mum and today we have fought constantly to the fact she has now walked out!!!! :(

Any advice would be very much appreciated i dont understand why i seem to have lost the power to walk.
