1378884 tn?1315509445 My guess is you have a low back injury that is irritating the sciatic nerve, which travels down the back of your hip and down your leg. Bone deposits can build up due to altered mechanics in how your walk, sit, stand, etc. after an injury. The old song, "the hip bone's connected to the knee bone" has more than a little truth to it! A foot injury, for example, makes you limp. This puts stress on the adjacent joints, so eventually your knees, hips and back start to hurt, too.
Avatar m tn This is also my excruciating story...so much pain in the tailbone and hip and lower back area. Standing for no more than 10 to 15 minutes. A trip to walmart is torture. I also have barretts esophagus and cannot take any NSAIDS...life can be miserable and It is well for us to keep a good outlook and get plenty of sleep to deal with these pains, but I am hopeful that some day there will be a pain med for me!
Avatar m tn For about 2 and a half years now, I have been having pain in my lower back and hio. My ortho sent me for an MRI and he said I had Spondylolisthesis. He treated it with Physical Therapy (which didn't work) and with Pain meds. He retired about a year and a half ago and I can't find someone who will treat me because its a "Chronic Condition. I was finally sent to a pain clinic. The Dr there wants me to have Facet injections and I am so afraid to try that.
Avatar n tn For the last 4 months, every morning when I wake up I have what appears to be muscle pain just above my right hip and it radiates around to my lower back. The pain is not apparent during the day while I'm moving about, except during this same time-frame, my Chiropractor has not been able to perform one of his typical "moves" where he puts me on my left side and twists my body by applying pressure to my hip.
Avatar m tn 54yr old female,have had this chronic lower back pain that radiates to hip area.I do have arthritis in lower back and hip,but the meds for it does nothing.I stretch every night before bed and every morning before getting out to no avail.I look like I'm 90 yrs old after a pain full ten minutes of trying to get out of bed.I have to inhale to stand up straight(omg the pain) but once I pee and get into kitchen for coffee I'm fine.The only doctor I haven't seen is a nerve doctor.
Avatar n tn Fast forwarding to yesterday - I started having pain in not only my hip, but my lower back (more like the tailbone), my groin area and down my leg on the left side. I have a service I can call through my insurance company so at 3:00 am when I could no longer tolerate the pain I called the hotline.
Avatar n tn I have worked as a paramedic for 20 years, Over the past 2 to three years I have begun to limp, my left leg seems longer than the right, and a lot of pain in left hip and left lower back. I have been diagnosed with 4 minor bulging disks in my lumbar region and went through 8 weeks of PT with no relief. The Doctor I saw at the time said this was just normal aging for a 46 year old female and nothing to be concerned with.
Avatar n tn Sometimes hip pain can be a symptom of lower back problems. Hope you get your answers.
Avatar f tn On a plane, you will have to get up at intervals and move around. Bringing knees to chest helps relieve pain in lower back and hips. Keep feet moving. Safe journey. Let us know how you got on.
Avatar m tn Hi, The symptoms of severe pain that you are experiencing may be due osteoarthritis or degenerative disease of the spine. The treatment of osteoarthritis includes exercise, medications and measures to protect the joints. This includes a teamwork of rheumatologist, physical therapist and orthopedic surgeon. Please consult an orthopaedic surgeon and rheumatologist for treatment and continue the physiotherapy at the same time for the relief of the symptoms. Hope this helps you.
Avatar f tn I had this happen to me and it was caused from Osteoarthritis in my hip. It would cause the pain to radiate down my leg all the way to my toes as you are experiencing. I had to have a THR (Total Hip Replacement) done when I was 35 years old to get the pain taken care of. I've had 2 others since then, over a 30 year period of time. (the first one lasted for 26 years.) But it's my understanding that SI Joint disease can also do this. That's why you need to get it narrowed down.
1131208 tn?1260211546 I called the doc and I'm going back on Wednesday...I've had so many injections in the hip that I have a major crater there from fat atrophy. I know that was a long story...but has ANYONE experienced anything like this? It's more than bursitis.....Could the AVN be progressed to a point that bad enough to hurt that bad yet not be seen on x-ray? He mentioned that it may look like I have a labral tear on my x-ray...
Avatar m tn the 2nd was a total hip. Unfortunately, I am in worse pain now, not only my hip, but my back. Now the operating surgeon in NYC, one of the best, wants me to go thru "pain management", saying it may be my back! I rushed into surgery because he said, "You will be out of pain". I wish I would have tried cortisone shots, more medication or something else before rushing the hip replacement. I wanted to be out of pain for my daughter's wedding 2 wks. ago!
974371 tn?1424656729 A few months ago, I started having low back and left hip pain that persisted. My dictor finally ordered an x-ray then an a MRI as a month of PT was no help at all. Tests dud show degeneration so he said it is age related, I am just 64. Different PT and they have been basically doing heat and ultrasound, no improvement and I now have pain across lower back, over both hips and a burning pain on the right side of my mid back. I am also going for acupuncture but nothing is helping.
Avatar n tn I had a positive ANA test, but other tests proved it to be nothing, and the only thing that the X-Rays and MRI's have shown is mild osteoarthritis in my lumbar back, right hip and feet. Nothing to explain the severity of pain in my tailbone and feet. What could be causing this pain and who should I see for it?
Avatar n tn FYI, the hip joint itself is located in the groin, pain out to the side, or in your lower back, are not usually from your hip.
941625 tn?1263585382 I did six rounds of chemo and 33 radiation treatments. I have had chronic and horrible lower back pain ever since. I have been seeing a rheumatologist for this, and he found some arthritis and fused vertebraes. He says he's not sure why my back hurts though all the time and just keeps me on a low dose of percocet. The problem is it isn't managing my pain and I can't stand this. Does anyone else have chronic pain in this area following treatment? If so, what are your docs and you doing to treat?
Avatar n tn It can be due to arthritis(osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis),trochanteric bursitis(Inflammation of the sacs or space around the joint), Tendinitis from repetitive or strenuous activity, toxic synovitis or infection of the hip joint leading to necrosis. Low-back pain such as sciatica or fractures can also cause such pain.One more possibility is developmental dysplasia of the hip.Have you been investigated for all of these?
Avatar n tn After an MRI which showed nothing I was put on Lyrica and the headaches disapatedl. This time it started in my lower back and went to my hips. It is really sore when I press in on them at the joint where I walk and I get groin pains, then I get a backache. I also have loss of appetite as I worry it is something else. I have an appointment with Gyn next Thursday. but I had a pelvic and pap smear in August and everything was fine.
Avatar n tn I'm a 23 year old female and over the last 3-4 weeks have been getting increasingly bad hip pain. It's in both hips but mostly on the right hand side. There is occasionally some mild lower back pain but not much and it doesn't spread anywhere else. It's not a sharp pain or a constant pain, but more of a constant aching. Sitting here right now typing this it's quite sore, also when I stand up, walk, lay down and move. I can't cross my legs while sitting as this is worse.
Avatar m tn ) I'm hoping you haven't finished all of your trips as of yet and hope this can give you a little bit of relief when traveling. I've had 3 hip implants in my left hip and I'm getting ready to have my 1st hip implant in my right hip on October 28th of this year. Now when I travel I always get wheelchair assistance to help me from gate to gate. This takes an immense amount of stress off of my hips, back and legs and definitely it helps keep the pain at bay. This allows.
Avatar f tn At the age of 27 I was diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in my left hip and needed a hip replacement back in 1973 but they had me put it off until as long as I could because the hip implants were knew then and it wouldn't have lasted longer than 5 to 10 years at that time. I managed to wait until I was 35 years old and was walking with a cane and on Tylox and couldn't walk anymore before I did. In turn, my putting it off caused sever damage to my back and that in turn caused the DDD.
Avatar m tn This is associated with focal defects in the immediately adjacent articular cartilage of the femoral head and the acetabulum. Impression 1. Osteoarthritis of the right hip characterized by degenerative tearing of the labrum and focal defects in the articular cartilage. 2. The contour of the femoral head and the appearance of the acetabulum on the pelvis x-ray suggests that the patient is likely impinging due to both pincer and CAM type morphology.
Avatar n tn Because the pain was till there in his.....should I say lower back( at thigh part) he was given another prescription which is dolonnerebion, mobic & bactolov..again in 1 week. The Dr also let him x-ray and the result was normal and no abnormalities found. But til until now he is still expriencing the pain. the last prescription was already complete. Is it possible that he has this RA?or just high in uric acid?
1522912 tn?1292053850 My mother has a similar pain, hers is her sciatic nerve, its a disease called sciatia im pretty sure. you could try googling that.
Avatar n tn I have had lower back pain for many years . I finally broke down and went to see the Dr. when my back had a very bad spasam and I could barely move without helped. I was put on muscle relaxents . Then returned when it wasen't to bad for an MRI . It showed I had degenerative arthritis.So I was put on tylenol high dose prescription for about 15 years. Mean while my knees started to crackle and hurt . I couldn't sneek up on my then teenage son going upstairs because he could hear me coming.
Avatar m tn When my pelvis is in a neutral position the pain goes away. When it is tilted forward, creating and arch in my lower back my pain returns. Today I am pain free. So my symptoms are: -Buttocks pain that worsens with exercise from nagging to extreme difficulty rising from bed (Piriformis Agitation). -Some pain radiation from SI joint to upper hamstring (Sciatica irritation).
Avatar f tn The pain can be in my lower buttock or it can be up high near the bone (pelvic) in the back or just in the middle of the hip. Massaging makes it worse. I am also doing accupuncture since end of Dec. Help! I am at my wits end and not sure where to go or what to do or if this doctor is on the right track. Thank you for any advice. PS I have had xrays 2 MRIs. Shows very little arthritis or spine narrowing or herniated discs.
