I wondered if anyone can help me. I'll try start at the beginning. I went on a 2 hour horse ride whilst on holiday and haven't been on a horse for over 10 years. Half way through the ride I started to get severe pins and needles in both feet and my back started hurting so I requested the ride was cut short and we returned to stables. When I got back I could not lift my leg to dismount (I eventually did) but had very shaky legs. Upon my return home my back was really painful so I visited GP who diagnosed me with a prolapsed disc. He put me on codeine,naproxen and diazepam for the pain. I went back to the doctor as I started getting constipated very badly and was struggling to pee. It would take an age to start and then when I thought i stopped it started again. The doctor put this down to the codeine he did a pin test as I could still feel the pin prick he wasn't worried. However since then my bottom has got feeling bit feels very strange. And my legs are very shaky still. I have been signed off work but getting pressure from my boss to return.
Could I be suffering from CES. I am really scared. I hoping someone might be able to offer me some advice.
