Dr. Conrad Murray

Jail Is

KILLING ME!

Dr. Conrad Murray says his body is in worse shape than one of those zombies from the Michael Jackson 'Thriller' video ... claiming he's suffered serious injuries behind bars ... and he wants out.

TMZ has obtained a recording of a jailhouse phone call between Murray and a friend ... in which the Doc says he was rushed to USC Medical Center earlier this week after fearing he was suffering from deadly blood clots in his legs.

"It progressed until the leg felt numb ... it was painful all to the top of my foot ... around the medial aspect of my ankle and all the way to the mid-calf."

Murray -- who was a licensed doctor before he killed Michael Jackson -- explained, "Blood clots are relatively risky ... especially if they propagate from the legs into the lungs to cause pulmonary embolism which can result in permanent disability or even death."

Ultimately, doctors who are currently licensed determined there were no blood clots and returned Murray to his cell ... where he says he continues to suffer.

"I have had to lay in bed for most of the day because there is no way to elevate my feet. One of the recommendations by the doctor is to keep my legs elevated and to increase my activity which is impossible in a 5x7 cell."

During the call, Murray gripes that his feet have become so swollen, "I may never be able to wear a boot again." So much for line-dancing after his release ...

Murray then issues a veiled threat -- "I don't want to be permanently hurt by any condition in here ... because if I am, I will not let it rest."

He also complains about pain in his right shoulder ... and as we previously reported, he came down with a ferocious case of diarrhea earlier this year.

His lawyer has even sent a letter to the L.A. County Sheriff Lee Baca, asking the jail for more humane treatment -- comparing Murray's situation to a dog in a small cage.

Jail -- it ain't the Hilton.

You're the fall guy for the murking of Michael Jackson. You have to ride this one out unless you are going to tell secrets. When there were issues with MJ, you should have done something instead of being just another Yes man.

It sounds like Murray isn't getting enough sleep either. Maybe the prison doctor should hook him up to a propofol IV drip to help him out.

Did he hold a gun to Michael Jacksons head and force him to take all the Meds?. If not then seems to me Jackson killed himself, just like Elvis!

Maybe a very large dose of Propofol would help.

What about the part that all the inmates and the jail guards are adoring our Doctor in jail, calling him a hero. Those people all tell our Doctor, they would have beaten MJ to pulp if he was convicted and put in jail as a pedophile. TMZ how come you are not reporting that???
