I am a person that has no insurance and about 5 weeks ago was riding home from Miami taking turns from the backseat to the floor and all I know was at one of our stops I could hardly walk and it has not gotten any better. I can't afford to go to the doctor so I have learned to get by with muscle rubs and ice and heat and very little activity. When I walk there is severe pain in the back of my right leg. I am 53 and maybe things don't heal as quickly now the nights are bad because it aches and throbs until I am so tired as I lay on a heating pad that I finally fall asleep. I guess what I am asking is does it take this long to heal?
