Yes: Young female has "hip" discomfort & sense of "locking" + radiation of pain to groin. These symptoms are compatible w. sacroiliac joint, SIJ, disorder. Vertebral disk disorders do not radiate to groin, but SIJ does. Absent childbirth or mechanical injury of SIJ, there becomes a need to consider contribution of Joint Hypermobility Syndrome, JHS. Osteopaths have diagnostic skills in this arena. ...Read more

What causes weak thigh, hamstring, and gluteal muscles in older people?

Natural history: Gait analysis studies show thigh (quad muscle) inhibition and weakness as we age. It is a natural cause of limping (or knee hyperextended walking), which aggravates the hamstring tendons. Exercises to retrain the quad muscles can help. These exercises include straight leg raises, exercise bicycle, and gentle stairclimbing. Forcing yourself not to limp will also help. ...Read more

Mri shows 1.5 inch lipoma deep in left gulteal muscle - could this be causing pain in  gluteal  muscle and siatica pain in same leg?

Yes or Piriformis: The sciatic nerve runs underneath the piriformis muscle and typically does not irritate the nerve. However if the muscle is irritated or the nerve runs through the belly of the muscle (5-10% of people) it can press on the sciatic nerve and cause the sciatica type pain in the buttock region but also radiate into the leg as well. Typically stretching and nsaids are mainstay for treatment. ...Read more

May be inflammation: Hyper intensity my indicate inflammation or a hemangioma. Tough to say without looking at the images. I would see a spine specialist and get an opinion. The gluteal area is well below l1. So I do not believe those symptoms are related. ...Read more

Here are some ...: Go to confirm no UTI, poor bladder emptying, etc. by physical exam + testing UA & residual urine. As to managing the potential consequence from nerve compression affecting bladder nerve, work with Doc so to decide what and how. In the meantime, try to urinate on regular basis + using one of alpha-blockers to help relax bladder opening and prostate urethra. Hopefully, all things in lower spine will ...Read more

Orchiectomy : Without further details of your medical history and the festivals of your "regular work life, " it is hard to say whether the pain is connected to the surgery and the original problem. Was it a tumor? You are less than 6 mos out from your surgery, so it is best to check with your urologist/ oncologist to make sure everything is ok. ...Read more
