Long saphenous vein blocked on left leg. Could this cause sciatica? Pain back of both legs, hips and right side groin. Worse right side

Long saphenous vein blocked on left leg. Could this cause sciatica? Pain back of both legs, hips and right side groin. Worse right side

No.: Development of a clot of what was once called the long saphenous vein may cause discomfort, tenderness to touch, redness, or warmth over the length of the vein itself -- something called thrombophlebitis. This is a local issue, self-limited, and should not lead to discomfort in the other leg or the hips. If the clot extends near its junction with the deep veins, it may lead to a DVT. ...Read more

I've got lower back, hip and under tummy pain. That leads to thigh and leg pain. I've had this for 1month. Can you please tell me why I get this pain?

Sciatica is a condition in which a nerve can become irritated in the back and this can cause back pain and pain that runs down the leg; but it usually does not cause "tummy pain". It might be good to be seen and a detailed exam and appropriate studies can usually determine the cause. ...Read more

I have 2 tiny red bumps on each thigh. They have a white head. Is this herpes? I also get a slight burning feeling in my groin, hips, low back and legs constantly.

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 more

I am wondering if you can give me any insight into why I am experiencing these symptoms: all on the left side of my body; shoulder, elbow, arm, groin, and leg pain. Thanks!

I am wondering if you can give me any insight into why I am experiencing these symptoms: all on the left side of my body; shoulder, elbow, arm, groin, and leg pain. Thanks!

Imbalance: When the body is too asymmetrical, you may suffer pain all over that side of the body. Not having examined you, the first thing you need to find out is whether one of your legs is way shorter than the other. Another aspect to consider is that when one of joints is inflamed, one's posture is also changed and in turn may lead to pain to the rest of the joints on that side of the body. ...Read more
