Received stent, angioplasty done. Numbness, burning in leg for years. Problem of pinched nerve?
I just received a stent and angioplasty ,4 days ago in left artery . My right leg goes to sleep and starts burning so bad I will have to stop moving and sit down or a least elevate it and it will stop hurting. This has been going on for about 3 or 4 years, I just learned to deal with it. One of the nurses said it might be a pinched nerved what do you think? I so hoped that the angio has going help that too.
welcome on hcm from your histroy i can suggest that it has no any relation with angioplasty,as it goes sleep(numb) it is nerve u should do some investigation do x ray, and dont do any weight lifting,do walk but hiking is not good .
