I had surgery a week ago Friday to repair a labral tear, I

I had surgery a week ago Friday to repair a labral tear, I had a nerve block for the procedure. I still do not have feeling back in my right leg (procedure leg). My PT says it follows the L4 path or L3...cant remember right now basically from the surgical sight all the way down the inside of my leg to my big toe. I can move my big toe and have a little feeling but do not have any feeling in the rest (a little over 1/2 my leg). Even deep tissue.How long will this last and what are the treatment options? we put a call into my surgeon but have not heard back yet. My PT says these can take a 6 months to a year to come back, I am hoping that is not the case. The whole point of the surgery was to return to my active lifestyle.

I had an mri that showed tendon tears and "severe arthritis?" . The ortho that I went to did an X-ray after reading the report and not even looking at the Mri because he said the mri didn't matter and that there was no sense in treating the tear if there was arthritis. What treatment options should I discuss with him and what other questions should I ask? Im not exactly comfortable with his assertion that the mri doesnt matter

Sometime last year when I did pullups, I felt a sharp,

Sometime last year when I did pullups, I felt a sharp, stinging pain in my upper right back. It seemed to only happen whenever I worked up - especially doing pullups so I kind of ignored it as it usually went away after awhile.Lately, this stinging pain has been on going and made worse not onlywhenever I work out, but also when I sit down and type. I noticed the pain still in my upper right back. But it seems to be affecting the movement of my shoulders and cause stinging pain in my neck from time to time. The severity of this pain can be painful, but most times its like a "sting" or "shock" feeling.I do sit and work from a computer for long periods of time. And now whenever I sit, I feel this pain in my upper back. Not only that, I feel a lot of weakness in my right hand and arm. I can still do stuff, but it generally feels weaker to do things as I feel my hands and arm gets "tired" after physical activity. It's more challenging to move my fingers and wrist around compared to my left. It's worth noting my right hand and arm is my dominant side as well.What could causing my upper back pain? Would this likely affect my neck and shoulder regions? How about my hand and arm? Is it also normal to have your muscle shake when uncontracting a flexed muscle (for example: if I flex my bicep and lower and relax my arm, it "shakes" without pain)?

I've been feeling pain in the bottom of my foot

I've been feeling pain in the bottom of my foot recently. More of a pins and needles feeling with a little bit of a Charlie Horse feeling as well. Also, I'm feeling a little bit of pain between the back of my head down my spine that stops at the shoulder blade area. I had an MRI in October for my brain, spine (thoracic/cervic) and everything checked out fine. What do you think is causing this pain. It's been going on for about a week
