Lower Back Pain Can T Lift Leg
I am 71 and have a terrible pain in my right inner thigh, not a muscle ache. Also lower back pain. Can't lift right leg due to pain. ?
Osteoarthritis hip?: If by inner thigh you mean groin and by lower back you mean buttock pain this could be osteoarthritis of the hip. If the pain starts at the lower back and radiated down the leg and is associated with numbness or tingling we could be dealing with a nerve problem. I suggest you go to your doctor to be thoroughly evaluated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My son used to lift weights hes 15 he began with lower back pain no he haves leg pain also in both legs he got xrays everything was good but still.
Spondylolysis: Back pain in adolescents is sometimes difficult to find a cause. As a weight lifter, he may have a stress fracture in an area of his spine called the pars interarticularis. This is often missed on routine x-rays and may require a bone scan. This is often seen in football linemen from hyperextension of the lumbar spine. Weight lifting can also increase stress in this area, particularly squatting. ...Read more

I have really bad lower back pain. It doesn't shoot down my leg or get numb. Hurts the worst when i stand up from a sitting position. What can it be?
Mechanical back pain: Back pain that doesn't radiate and gets worse after standing is usually musculoskeletal back pain. When we sit our iliopsoas muscles get tighter and then when we stand that tightness causes pain. Usually, a back extension program is a quick and easy fix. But see your doctor for treatment options. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If it persists or worsens, you may need a more thorough evaluation for diagnosis & appropriate treatment. Other possibilities include pyriformis syndrome. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
SIJ: Intolerable weight bearing one leg & associated ipsilateral low back pain implicates neural impingement at spinal/pelvic levels. Vertebral & sacroiliac joints, SIJ, are suspect & Neurologist & MRI are considerations. At 17 cm squared surface area, SIJ is largest joint in axial spine; giant proprioceptive sensor & body "GPS" system. I have noted unsteady one-leg balance w. ipsilateral SIJ disorder. ...Read more
I've had severe lower back pain for 2days. It has escalated to my left leg. What causes this? Is it serious? It also is painful to be sitting.
Possible disc troubl: You possibly have some lumbar/low back disc disease which could be impinging on a nerve root which causes pain to your leg(s). At times, non-discogenic but severe low back pain can radiate to your buttocks and upper legs, but if symptoms down to knee or below, it is likely from a disc problem. Severe hip pain can cause low back and leg pain as well. Motrin/aleve may help. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
