Had a bit of a doze in the chair and woke up with an acute pain in my left side just above the hip. This was accompanied by a lot worsening in walking.
I can usually walk very slowly and for a very short distance but after this I couldnt walk at all.
It feel like the sciatic nerve in my left leg has been some how shortened and now I cant get my entire foot on the floor.
This happened 8 days ago and the pain stopped me getting to sleep as I couldnt find a position where my leg wasnt either twitching badly or the pain was just too much. Since then that has improved slightly and the walking even less slightly. I am using a chair as a zimmer frame to get around the flat.
I have a feeling this was just a sudden attack and things will slowly revert back but given the progressive nature of this disease maybe it wont revert back completely. The other funny thing is I used to get very painful ancles but this new pain has replaced that and now they are not painfil and not even swollen !.
Anybody experienced similar ? Anyone know what the reason maybe and if Im right in thinking its just a temporary attack ?
NB. Im on no medication other than annadin extra ( lots of ) .
