My mother has had extreme hip/leg pain for almost a year now, to the point where she can hardly walk, what could cause this? My mother has had extreme hip/leg pain for almost a year now, to the point where she can hardly walk and is now using a cane. It

If : If your mother's bone scan of the hip did not show any signs of loosening of the hip implant, then i think it is unlikely that her pain is coming from the hip. I would be more concerned about her spinal stenosis. Narrowing of the spinal canal (stenosis) often causes numbness, tingling, and burning pain in the legs. These symptoms can often be relieved with an operation to decompress the pinched nerve roots. I think you should take your mother to an orthopaedic spine surgeon. If you can't find anyone close to home, consider pittsburgh, morgantown, or columbus. Be sure to bring all of her xrays and bone scans (images, not just the reports). Good luck. ...Read more

Can having a hypertonic pelvic floor cause leg pain in both legs? Pain from the hips all the way down each leg to the ankle?

And the SI joint can rotate causing severe pain in posterior buttock or groin area and anterior thigh.
