I have a significant disc extrusion at L4/5 which is causing me considerable pain in my lower back, right buttock and right calf. Sometimes the pain reverts to my left side.
During the day I can cope using painkillers and walking but at night the pain is acute---once I get settled in bed initially it's OK but when I wake up every few hours I can hardly move without acute pain in both legs. My legs are weak to stand on and then it's painful to walk to the toilet.
Is this normal? I'm assuming that lying still for a few hours does something to make my legs painful on movement--is this the likely cause, has anyone else exprienced a similar situation?
