Recently I have undertaken a few epics! where carrying the bike (Hey im in the Lakes)and a change in my job has aggrevated a back injury
I have a long history of lower back pain,Last weekend I had a severe attack of Sciatica down both legs,Couldent go to the toilet,walk or stand up! I called out a medic on the Sunday evening and he has given me some Pain killers (Codeine Phosphate 30mgs) and the wonderfull (Diazepam 5mgs)....still flying!!
After seeing my doctor on Tuesday evening he advised me the Sciatica should subside after a few days, however the pain is persisting in my right foot,but my back pain has gone.
I enjoy a drink or two at the weekends so I have avoided the PKs since Wednesday night.
Its a simelar pain as though I have broken something (aching and then goes slightly)I can walk on it no problem,but there is some numbness after a while and the base of the foot feels as though it wants too "turn in" causing me to trip occasionally.Sometimes the pain gets so bad I have to take my sock off and boot (not done up tightly) as it feels as though its affecting circulation or something.
I cant recall any recent injurys related to my foot, although I once chipped a bone on the heal in a motorcycle accident.
I do have a high pain threshhold and am the kind of person that doesent realise I have cut myself until theres blood all over the place if that helps!
I appreciate this is not the Ideal place for advice on medical queries but any opinions or experience of this would be greatly appreciated,thanks.
