Hip pain, paralysis of leg until pain resolves
I am hoping that one or more of you have had a similar experience. I have been having sporadic episodes of severe hip pain when going from a sitting to standing position. It is as if my right hip is locked, the pain is so severe at the hip and down my leg I cannot stand up straight. Any attempt to try to straighten up leads to excruciating pain. I typically fall back to sit, and then for about 5-10 minutes I am absolutely unable to move my right leg. No because it hurts, I simply can't move it at all. When I am able to start moving it again it takes about another 10 minutes for me to be able to stand straight and start walking. This used to happen only once in a long while and did not last as long. Now it seems to be happening more frequently, with a longer recovery time, and my hip hurts for days after. I have a history of non diabetic peripheral neuropathy, and restless leg syndrome. I am not sure if this is sciatica kicking its heels up, or if it is part of the neuropathy. I work 12 hours shifts, and am on my feet constantly. I walk my dogs, no problem. Any advise would be appreciated.
