Weak legs came on suddenly, can barely walk
I am new here, and looking for anybody with similar problem who may know the cause of this. I have over 30 years back problems, laminectomy 10 years ago, DDD, facet arthritis, now recently had MRI and they found 2 bulging disks, the one at L 2-3 is bulging and pinching on a nerve. I had 2 injections 12 days ago, one was ESI, for the bulging disk, the other not sure what its called, for the chronic low back pain from the facet arthritis. I was doing better, just standing at kitchen counter when I could feel both legs from knees on down getting weaker and weaker. I could barely walk, still can't, and went to the ER. I need help walking. Doc checked me over, asked all kinds of questions about my back and leg history, prescribed anti-inflammatory meds, and a walker, and told me to see my doc on Monday. Does anybody know what this is and what caused it? I forgot to tell you I was on my feet yesterday about an hour shopping ( something I could not normally do without pain ) and did have some pain in my low back come on, but was still ok last night. This came on this morning with no notice, after I was up a couple of hours. I feel like my feet are dead weight. When doc put her hand under each and told me to push, I had absolutely nothing in the right one ( side pinched nerve is on ) and very little to nothing in the left. Thankyou for any info.
