Leg pain and weakness following a concussion

Posted , 2 users are following.

I had a concussion over two months ago. Since then I’ve had a bunch of weird symptoms. Recently I have been having a lot of pain in the back of my right leg. Specifically in the right glute and down the back of my right leg. It has been going on for about two months now and the pain is constant while driving or sitting. I can deal with pain, but what I can’t deal with is a new symptom where my right leg (the leg that has been affected by pain) now feels like it’s getting weaker. I can walk on my toes and heels. But my leg doesn’t feel right. I am very anxious about this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. My question is whether this is sciatica or something much worse.

    I had a traumatic brain injury 11 months ago. I get occasional pain down right leg

    Not very often. About 2 months after my fall my right foot, toes and right side of foot went completely numb. In two days I'm going for nerve test to find out where nerve is being compressed. I was told most likely the L 4 disc
