Back Of Thigh Swollen Sciatic
Pins and needles in calf, spasm, pain in thigh, swollen groin and hip and lower back pain. Had leg sonogram last month and no clot. What could it be?
Possibly venous: You may have venous insufficiency, or venous reflux, of the leg veins or pelvic veins. Ask for an ultrasound of your leg veins to check for it - it is different than looking for a clot - make sure you are sitting or standing during the scan. You would need an mrv to look for dilated pelvic veins. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Has anyone ever heard of nerve pain symptoms, seemingly sciatic, shooting into the thigh only, and without any associated back or buttock pains?
I have a pain that runs from my mid-left buttocks to the back of my thigh just above the knee, what is this pain? Someone said it maybe my sciatic nerve I have had this since february i notice it when i sit for a long time or when i run, what should I do?
Sciatica: Pain in the distribution as you suggested describes the pattern of the nerve that travels in the leg called the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is not the cause of the pain source, it is the result of an irritated nerve typically in the lumbar spine (low back) which are caused by herniated disks, spinal stenosis or degenerative disc disease requiring further evaluation by a spine specialist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Usually have sciatic nerve pain in right leg/back. Now have it in left leg/back? Burning sharp pain from lower back through thigh, what causes this?
A few thoughts: Any pain that runs down buttock &/or back of thigh is often labeled 'sciatic' pain.Truth is, there are many poss. causes.The sciatic nerve or one of it's branches can be 'pinched' by a herniated disc, stuck vertebra, or piriformis muscle spasm (COMMON in pregnancy).Many other causes such as referred pain from SI ligament injury, too.In pregnancy, ligaments stretch more easily leading to pain. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I hurt my left sciatic nerve by injuring my back. I have had numbness in the bottom of my foot, back of my thigh but , today in my left testical. It's numb and it's uncomfortable. My left leg is numb as well. Should I be concerned?? Thank you
Get this evaluated: You describe involvement of the S-1 nerve root, and now it appears your symptoms are progressing. If you have a damaged disc, there may be increasing compression of nerve roots, and if this is case, you have risk of increased weakness, involvement of bladder, and perhaps trouble with urinary function. This is not a situation to delay. Contact a surgeon, and decide on therapeutic intervention. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with swollen optic nerve going when i get results, shall i mention a numb/painful ear pain & back/sciatic pain affecting hips?
surely: Best to have your current issues all addressed at same time, but realize that the optic nerve issue is unlikely to be caused by the same pathology resulting in your sciatica. However, if the eye issue is related to ms, there could be a painful symptom associated. Yes, tell your doctor, and let him/her decide. ...Read more
I've been having bad sciatic nerve/lower back pain, Now Right above my knee is swollen.Is that from nerves?Disck herniation? Blood clot?
None of the above: You certainly are a worrier to come up with those 3 possibilities instead of something more commonplace, like knee strain. Did a doctor diagnose you with sciatica, or did you diagnose yourself? Sounds like you need to have your knee examined by a live doctor in his/her office, someone who can counsel you about what to worry about & what not to worry about. Trusting Dr. Google is hazardous. ...Read more
