  1. I am sorry I do not. It sounds terrible, however. I hope you find relief quickly.

    1. Did you injure yourself, or did this happen on its own? What did the doctors call it? Compressed nerves?

      1. I am a 59 year old lady i was pushed from chair on to the floor i did go to hospital at the time when i was 21 and this was the start of all my problems ect & how i am today i just wish things were differant and i didnt go through the problems i have.

    2. , I am so sorry you are experiencing this issue. I have the same questions as . Did you fall?


      12 years ago, my husband fell in an icy parking lot and had bulging discs that then compressed the nerves and he was temporarily paralyzed from the waist down. It required surgery to repair the discs, but he has not had any issues since then. He did have months of physical therapy as well, following the surgery.


      Some neurologists will try less aggressive treatment options if surgery can be avoided.


      Have the physicians given you any input as to how to treat your problem and what could have caused it?

        2. , sometimes old injuries can flare up, even years later. But, keep in mind, I am not your physician, so I can't say what is going on with you. Are physicians monitoring your situation? Best, Erin, RheumatoidArthritis.net Team Member.
