Sacral plexus agonizing pain

Dec 02, 2016 3:04 PM

Hi. I have been in excruciating pain, radiating from my lower back, specifically from the sacral plexus, and down my left leg. Unable to walk for three days and almost incontinent at times. Has anybody experienced this? Help!

Oh my ... I had sciatica pain that turned into incontinence issues. Bladder mostly.. I ended up having emergency surgery.
Claudia equine was my condition.
Bladder incontinence is a red flag.
Please consider going to emerg. I had surgery within 8 hours.
So sorry ... Wish I could tell you a different story.

Tell them you are having incontinence issues first off ... This is the most important info to start with.

Will try that! Symptoms persist so will try to get a GP appointment next week and a referral. Thanks all for your replies!
