- Learn about ALS
I left a couple posts about a month ago talking about stiffness in my right hamstring. Well I went to the doctor and was sent to do an mri on my back. The results showed that I have a heavily herniated disc in my lower back that is pinching my L5 nerve root, and I also have a case of stenosis resulting from it. It brought temporary relief and my doctor prescribed me antiinflammatories and muscle relaxers and set me up to meet with a nuerosurgeon next week. What worries me is that my symptoms continue to worsen. First I started to get tremors in both feet, then my left leg started to feel restless and tired until It got stiff as well. My arms started feeling funny and very shaky when i would try to hold things, and over the last week I have started getting muscle twitches everywhere when i would try to relax (Both legs, both arms, back, chest, and sometimes face). The muscle twitches worry me the most because they seem to be everywhere and are really annoing. Now both of my legs feel very tired, heavy, stiff, and restless. Can all this be caused by my diagnosis or should i be worried about something else going on? You guys have been very helpful and informative in my past posts, so thank you a lot for taking your time to help!
