Lower back pain radiating down the front of both thighs but mostly my left front thigh Started after having to set in uncomfortable chair for hours?

Possible stenosis: If these symptoms occur with prolonged standing or walking they are certainly consistent with spinal stenosis. If they are occurring street other possibilities exist there could be a form of neuropathy after your prolonged sitting. I would suggest seeing a neurologist to assess where the pain is coming from

I have been experiencing bad lower back pain, radiating down my left leg. I can't afford to go to my doctor...Any advice would be so appreciated!

Stretch and walk: Stretching and walking are the best for low back pain radiating to the leg. Lie on your back with one leg flat and bring the other knee up to your chest and hold for 10 seconds, then alternate legs. Repeat that 3 times. Do this every day. Try to walk at least 5 minutes 3 times a day. Ice and heat can help. Drink adequate fluids. If you tolerate them, you can take acetaminophen and/or naproxen.

I've been doing physical therapy, but after exercise yesterday, why would I have lower back pain radiating into my knee and front knee on the right?

Radiating pain: Pain after therapy radiating down the leg to the knee is most likely related to nerve irritation. I suggest you go back into the physician who referred you to physical therapy and be reassessed.

Infection or stone: You likely have a kidney stone, though a urinary tract infection can cause similar symptoms, especially if tracking up from the bladder to the kidney (s). I think you should see your doctor for further evaluation.

Any of the above.: It could actually be any of the above. Perhaps take an anti-inflammatory to see if it goes away. Otherwise a physical exam by a doctor may be needed.

Low abdomen discomfort low back pain and left groin pain all pain and discomfort on left side feel bloated or full all the time what could this be?

NEED A WORKUP: Could be anything from a female issue such as ovarian cyst or muscle pull. I would see your gynecologist or primary physician as a first place to start. Back issues such as herniated discs or facet problems can also cause back and groin pain. You need a workup if this continues.

Maybe diverticulitis: There could be a lot of reasons for this but the first one I think it was the reticulitis. It would be best for you to see your physician and get this clarified. There are other conditions that can cause, discomfort. It may be a simple issue but it needs to be evaluated.

I've been experiencing low back pain that went to groin & it feels like my hip socket is grinding together. What could it be? No pain in leg.

I've been experiencing low back pain that went to groin & it feels like my hip socket is grinding together. What could it be? No pain in leg.

Hip: Most painful conditions in the hip cause pain in the groin area, so I suspect it maybe an issue with the hip itself, which would go along with your complaints of a grinding sensation in the hip as well. The most common things we see are arthritic problems in the hip or an internal derangement of the hip such as a labral tear. An exam, X-ray, and possibly an MRI can likely determine the cause.

No slipped disc, no K stones, not sciatica, R low back pain moved to tingling hot heavy hip→groin pain. Hurts to sit, feels good to stand. Pls help!

Nerve impingement: Can be caused by being sandwiched between two spinal bones, pressed by a bulging. It can cause muscle spasm and back pain. Prevention treatment is always recommended. This condition must be professionally managed. See interventional pain management specialist for definitive diagnosis and management. It is the same as a pinched nerve.

Hip pain from injury that won't go away after 5 weeks. Now causing low back pain, inner thigh pain by groin, and buttocks pain. What can I do?

Hip pain from injury that won't go away after 5 weeks. Now causing low back pain, inner thigh pain by groin, and buttocks pain. What can I do?

Sacroiliac ligament: Sounds like you are having referred pain from sacroiliac (SI) dysfunction. Would be good to be evaluated for this by your family doctor. Best treatment is a small injection of anesthesia and steroid into the specific area of the SI ligament. Depending on injury, could also be a hop labral tear that can give same symptoms. You need to be evaluated in person.

Is there always great pain with kidney stones? On and off low back pain not severe and aching in ovary area and pinching in groin. Could it be stones

Yes it could be tiny: It could be small stones or "gravel" or other things. You should see your doctor. Usually stones cause severe pain when they block the internet.

Hip labral debridement 2 weeks ago - still have groin pain, but now a bad ache, thigh pain and low back pain also - is this normal? Not on crutches

Possible: I would not be surprised if you continued to have these symptoms just 2 weeks after this procedure. However, you really should check with the orthopedist who did the procedure to determine what the typical recovery period should be and what you should expect.
