- Inflammation in leg and around pelvis
I gave birth two years ago, in my birthing plan it only stated that i wished for gas & air ONlY.
I was very confused what with all the gas & air.. So all i heared was midewife saying that she will order pethidine. Next minute i know midwife injects me with pethidine in right buttuck.
Later that day i feel extreamly bruised where i was injected but thought nothing of it. The bruised feeling continued for two weeks getting stronger and more painful when i just couldnt move. I literally couldnt move my leg, the pain had got so bad that i was screaming and had to call 999.
Doctors had to check if i was paralyed as i couldnt move my leg. Turns out i was not paralysed.
I was sent home in crazy pain, screaming. It got so bad that i had to urinate myself in bed as i couldnt move to get out. Again i called 999. Hospital kept me in for a week, they though it was sciatica nerve. MRI scan showed inflammation in leg ad around the pelvis area. In hopital i learnt to walk all over again using zimmer frame. (This all happened in july and i finally was off crutches that october.) a couple of weeks after being out of hospital my left collar bone was swallon badly and i couldnt lift my left arm all the way up and my two fingers in left had were slightly numb. Again i had a MRI scan which showed again inflammation.
A doctor who had been treating me had told me that he has never seen this before and his does not know what has causes all this.. I suggest the pethidine.. And he quickly snaps and says that he does not know the cause but is certain its not the pethidine. I truely believe it was the pethidine. I made a full recovery, but the past year i have been experiencing discomfort in my buttuck and sometimes hip and shooting pains down my leg and in my foot (all the same side where i was injected)
I had an MRI scan on my spine lumber & sacral and pelvis but strangly results say its normal.
What is this pain? And been physio but this did not help it made pain worse. It is all a mystery, i want answers, i know it has something to do with the pethidine.

WalleyWalrus on Dec, 29, 2013:
52 year old, white, female, recently diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis (painful bladder syndrome). Also had recent surgery for mucocele on my appendix. Type II diabetes and gastrophoresis. Been taking amitriptyline for severe bladder pain for approx. 6 months. Began at 10mg increased to 25mg. Can't sleep at night, sleepy throughout the day, zero appetite, nothing tastes right even water, eat a few bites and can't swallow any more, lost 30 in 6 weeks, extremely weak muscles, balance issues, blood sugars high dispite lack of food, extreme constipation, depressed (no interest in anything) where I wasn't depressed before. I thought I was having a long recovery from my surgery. I keep feeling more sick and weak and don't want to eat. I have almost fallen several times because my legs start to give out from underneath me. I have worked full time for 30 years. I kept wondering what was wrong with me. I am having to steady myself with a cane and I don't have the strength to step onto a curb. I did some research and found that someone with gastrophoresis should not take amilyltriptoline! I also have type II diabetes and I take Ritalin for a sleep disorder and these are two other reasons why I should not take amilyltriptoline. I stopped it last night and will call my doctor tomorrow. I hope my bladder pain doesn't flare up, but I have to get off this medicine!
