Please im scared dont know what to do

Dear,

Thanks for all these additional details.

I am sorry to hear about your problem.

Such symptoms are most likely, due to a pinched nerve in the spine, and may be affected by posture in sleep.

Pressure on the spinal nerves or pressure on Peripheral nerves can cause numbness in legs.

The compression of lumbar nerves L4 or L5 or sacral nerves will cause such symptoms.

You can follow below measures-

1. You can apply ice packs on your back for 15 minutes and can be repeated 3-4 times a day.

2. Stretching exercises for your low back can help you feel better and may help to relieve nerve root compression.

3. You should take help from physical therapist. Physical therapy includes various modalities like - Short wave diathermy,Infra red and Wax therapy , these will help you a lot.

4. You can start with OTC Motrin and can be taken in twice a day.

5. Muscle relaxants would also be helpful for your condition.

6. You should take bed rest, and remain away from lifting any heavy objects.

You should use a cold pack to relax tense muscles and this will help in cramps. After this use a warm towel or heating pad later if you have pain or tenderness, you can take a hot bath.
Also massaging the cramped muscle will help you.
You should gently stretch your leg and move your foot towards your knee until you feel the calf muscles stretch.This will relax your leg muscles.
Also, you should formulate an exercise routine and ensure that you build on it gradually.You should avoid alcohol, coffee, tobacco.

This is not related to any serious issue, Please use measures, as discussed in above post, and you would get good results.

Hope this helped

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
