Among the rich palatte of pains and sensations I have been contending with since my pelvic pain odyssey began has been a feeling that my left ankle is about to collapse. It never actually has, and in order to maintain the strict proper gati my physical therapist urges me to maintain I try to ignore this weakness signel as just another of the paranoid ravings of a confused sciatic nerve. I read other posts of other Hughies who feel what they describe as "weakness" and wondered if it was similar to what I feel.
So my question -- has anyone ever had an ankle or foot actually collapse with this feeling of weakness? In other words, am I ignoring my insane sciatic nerve at my own peril? Even paranoid people (and nerves) are sometimes right.
