Been reading here for a while. Diagnosed with probable l4/l5 herniation. Been in constant pain for 8 weeks. At the Moment I get pain free well almost for about 1 hour after resting. Then it starts to come back with back ache constant dull and deep. . Hip pain leg pain. This is both legs. Constant toothache of the leg well thigh. Rarely goes below knee. Electric shocks in hips that drop me to my knees. Sleeping on floor for most of.time .just got new orthopaedic marattress as could not sleep on our soft memory foam one.
can't sit for more than that 20 mins. Stand for 40 maybe before my leg goes weak. Off work as sit at desk all day. Just wanted to know this is all normal. Hoping for mri within next 7 days. Money does talk it seems as saw consultant privately.

I'm.on tramadol but I get sick. And cocodamol 30/500 not that they do much for the legs.
