Hi Everyone I could do with some advice? I suffered sciatica after slipping a disc many years ago however since my half knee replacement op nearly two weeks ago I'm suffering terribly when lying in bed? My sciatica is also on the same side as operated knee and I can't get comfortable when lying down either on my side or back my knee feels like it's on fire and the pain from the sciatica runs from the base of my spine down the buttock then radiates right the way down my thigh and calf! I'm at my wits end through lack of sleep! Also the operated knee keeps going horribly numb the only way I can describe it is the feeling you get when you've crossed your legs for too long when sitting and I have a lot of pain behind the knee and calf as well! I know it's still early days but are these symptoms normal or should I have them investigated?
