Before another person asked me about my leg, i think i’ll blog it here so that I can refer you here… but then again… i’ll keep it short…
Felt pain in my right leg about 2 weeks ago… I thought it was due to too much weight-lifting at work and caused my muscles to overwork, so i ignored the pain and let it be. It wasn’t that bad really, until few days ago…

So I went to a TCM hall to get it checked… I wanted only a massage to relax my muscles but later discovered that I’m going to get acupunture too! Since the physician said so, I’ll did it. It felt good during the process, it relaxes my leg and pain was reduced… but the next day, it got very very bad! I screamed when I got off the bed in the morning… cried when i squat down or stand-up after sitting down… at first I thought it could be the after effect of the acupunture, but the pain got worst each day.

On Wednesday, while at work, the pain got real bad… the moment I started walking, the whole of my right leg gets sooo painful that I started crying… (damn maloo loh…) Decided to go SGH to check on it.

Abang brought me to SGH and I was put on a wheelchair for the entire time. After 6.5hrs at SGH (which 98% of it was waiting time!!), I was told to go to a specialist and would probably need a MRI scan to find out the root cause of the pain… currently the doc’s presumption is that it could either be due to a slipdisc (which I was told in Sep06 when I had that bad backache) or it could be due to an inflammation in my nerve or something on my right leg. It took him like 2 hrs to get back to me on my xray result and another 2hrs to get back to me with my prescription! It was so so frustrating! I was the first few to be waiting along the corridor but the last to leave! Why? Because I’m being too kind… the others keep complaining and requested to be dealt with first as it was urgent… see… in this case, it doesn’t pay to be kind… ended up leaving the hospital at 12midnight!

Ok… now back to my leg, so now I have to minimise my walking and standing and remain seated (which at times give me pain too) or laying down in bed. I feel like a handicap! I’m on MC till Sunday and will be back to work on Tuesday (Mon I’m on leave). I hope I’ll be able to walk properly without much pain by then.

So that’s the story about me not being able to walk and why I’m stuck at home…
