My lower back and pelvic area are in constant pain, numbness, shooting pain down the inside of the leg. I have hemangioma L2 1.9cm?

Hemangioma and pain: The likelihood of the hemangioma causing your pain is very small. Common things being common, sciatica or piriformis syndrome are two much more likely candidates. Go see your friendly orthopedist or neurologist for a work-up. They will be able to more clearly elucidate the source of your pain. Remember, I only practice orthopedics on the weekends!
