If it is getting worse definitely see a spine doc or orthopaedist. ...Read more

Veins in my l4&l5 pinched my spinal cord in pregn. Right leg is still numb 2yrs later. Lower back pain, feels like crushing&grinding. Long term affects?

Need to evaluate: This should not have persisted so long. Your description is consistent with nerve compression in your lower back causing a lumbosacral radiculopathy. Whether this is due to aberrant blood vessels or a disc herniation needs to be discovered. An MRI and an EMG should help. See your doctor and get this answered and treated. ...Read more

Lower back pain mainly in middle. Doesn't shoot down leg, no numbness. Really bad to go from sitting to standing. Need pillow behind back when sitting?

Disc pain: Likely a disc related pain. This pain feels worse while sitting and leaning forward or slouching, getting up from a siting position, bending forward, reaching out and above. Most damaged discs heal n their own if the causative factor is avoided such a lifting heavy objects, bending down all the time etc. Pillow behind the back extends the spine and relieves pressure on a damaged disc. ...Read more

I have a sligh scoliosis. I have lower back pain, I have been having electic shocks in my arms and legs. As well as numbness. Is it connected?

You're too young for the typical acquired form, unless you have a chronic debilitative disease. Check with your doctor to get to the bottom of your pains. ...Read more

I have lower back pain on the left side and that pain is now in the front. Along with pain down the leg but not pass my knee and numbness in the arm?

Back pain: The low back pain and radiation to the knee suggests a pinched nerve in the low back between the lumbar 3/4 disc. The numbness in the arm is unrelated to the low back. See a neurosurgeon or a neurologist to evaluate your pain and numbness to establish a cause and a treatment plan. ...Read more

I have lower back pain on my right and left side& recently have started getting tingling and numbness in my hand and legs and left calf swells somet

Related or unrelated: Low back pain associated with leg pain is common, often associated with nerve compression in the lumbar spine. Calf swelling, if related, is usually related to reduced leg mobility. Numbness in hands as well as legs would not be caused only by nerve compression in your lower spine--so do you have two diseases or only one? See a neurologist. ...Read more
