Hi folks.I don't know if this is the place to write this,but here goes.
Just over a year ago id been trying to get a wee bit fitter and yo lose some weight.I'd been attending a Football Fans In Fitness scheme weekly at Celtic Patk here in Glasgow
.I'd been really enjoying it. Started to feel some pain in ny groinand my left calf at first. I thought it was just wee niggly strains with exercising.
The calf pain soon turned into pain all the way up the back of my leg.I presumed it was a bout of sicatica whiv I've had before. The dull groin.pain started to become wee shooting pains that'd make me jump. ALmost like wee electric shocks. I'd to miss out on the exercise at the course a fee times.other times I joined in but with pain.
One week we got to train in the players old gym. The two man exercise with the very heavy medicine ball was too much for me and I had to stop. I was very sore as I made my way home that night. The "sciatic" pain was getting worse too. Mostly when siying/lying down.so I tried to carry on. The next week was a full hour of 5 a side football outdoors. In the snow no less. I thought itd kill me as I hadn't pkayed in about 20yrs,but I got though,and enjoyed it.next day was murder though. Muscle pains aplenty.
Groin and leg pain didn't seem worse though.
By a couple if weeks later it did. I'd to all but BEG to see my Gp,who had a quick look at me and agreed it was sciatica. Sent me away with pills. Since then I've been in hospital twice with kidney stones. First time was six days.had a stone removed. Next time was two days.I was sent home with note pills. Groin and abdomen pains have been hell since then again, and the leg pain is no longer anything like sciatica. At a recent urology appointment I saw my xray on screen and the nurse commented on my hips being g out of alignment. I don't know what that could do,but I'm now wondering IG its been causing all of the groin,leg and back pain that's basically ruined my life for a year now.
I've tried to be proactive by selling some of my guitars to pay for chiropractic,osteopath, sports injury therapist ,acupuncture and even homeopathic massage,but nothing has helped at all.
Urology told me last time I'd be out in their urgent list for being admitted to remove stones,but this week sent a letter telling me the last xray showed no stones.so that's it til next may. Meanwhile I still have all of the same ground and abdominal pains .
The leg pain is now like being stabbed in the calf repeatedly, whilst the outside of the leg and now my ankle feel like they are being squeezed very tightly. Its pure agony when everything is sore at once. My lower leg and foot have been slightly swelling too. When I try yo stand or wall a few steps,it also feels like liquid running under the sole of my foot.the weirdest sensation.
I now haven't been able to stand or walk unaided properly for about 8months. I'm also hunched/doubkee over when I try. I can't lie down,so I've spent months now stopped up on the couch all day and night,every day.
Ive basically bren When my gf gets up for work,I then try to lie down.if I'm exhausted enough I basically pass out and may get a few hours sleep. Somedays its almost two days til I can. I'm absolutely at the end of my rope with all of this. I know I'm depressed.and Its out a great strain on my relationship too. I basically can't do anything. I can just about get to the toilet and back.though sitting is hellishly painful.
I had Perthes disease as a child but I've been told its not a factor.
I can't have a bath as I can't get in and out. I bought a shoiwer seat,but even that is very uncomfortable to use. Drying afterward s is even sorer. I think I'm going to get droooed offbat A and E tonight and just sit and wait to be seen.I hate to do it,but I'm lost as to what alternative I have now. My GP isn't interested .
I'm sick of taking endless pills that do nothing too. The DWP are now back to face to face interviews.so I have to deal with that also. Even though I can only walk using a walker.and inky a fee yards til I'm exhausted and in a lot of pain.
Sorry if this just looks like a rant.im lost..
Does anyone have similar pains? Or any thoughts or advice would be appreciated.
