from repeated meperidine injections can be loosened by physical therapy or if it needs surgery. I have been taking scripted meperidine injections for over a decade to stop breakthrough migraine pain. The majority of the quadriceps muscle in both legs has been replaced by fibrotic tissue. I can no longer bend my legs at the knees. This has caused me to fall at the slightest mis-step, including up and down the stairs, and has thrown my back out. Walking is now extremely painful. For a long time, I would forceably bend them, trying to stretch them, but the range of motion has continued anyway. My right leg bends only a few degrees and my left leg bends about 45 degrees.
Has anyone else had this problem and found a way to return function to their legs?
thanks,
Faded time
