Hi, I have severe lower leg pain, that feels like I am being electrocuted every 30 seconds. I haven't slept and gabapentin and co odamol are not working. I am chronically ill so I am used to pain but this is unbearable!
I had a micro discectomy about a year ago due to quite a severe prolapse. It left me with nerve damage so the leg was hyper sensitive in parts and numb. But I have been fine pain wise since, and the op was a success. This pain is also in a different place than my sciatica was as it is more towards my shin and is much worse (who new that was possible).
The doctor thinks it might be nerve related or may be infected (as it is red). Has anyone had anything similar? Any pain relief tips?
