sciaticia in leg and foot
In the middle of April I had pain on side of lower leg. Went to ER. Thought it might be blood clot so did an ultra sound. It wasn't. They told me I had pulled a muscle. A week later I had to go back as pain was worse and there was some rash from buttock to ankle. They said it was shingles and gave me shingles meds. Two times after that , during the night, I had to go to ER because the pain was so bad on outside of lower leg I couldn't stand it.They gave me narcotic pain pills. When I got in to see my Dr. he asked who told me I had shingles. I said hospital. He said he had never seen shingles like that and it wasn't shingles rash. He asked when I had last MRI on back. About 2 years ago. So I had another one done. They are not sure of what it shows, but I have an appt with neurosurgeon next week. But oh the problems I am having. I have the drop foot. Can't move toes, raise or lower foot or turn foot side to side. Last week in the house I didn't raise my foot enough and stubbed toes on carpet and fell. Foot is black and swollen so much I can't wear shoe. I had x-ray and nothing is broken. Also it feels like there is a band around the ankle and it is pulled as tight as possible. It leaves a wide white place and how it hurts. Also have the same thing between the first 2 toes. Is all of this normal sciaticia symptoms?
