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.

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.

Evaluate Low Back: If you are not improving have your doctor order a lumbar spine mri. Many times a herniated disc in the back can cause leg pain especially if you have not improved with the medications and physical therapy. If it is a herniated disc you may need evaluation from a spine specialist to determine what other options might be needed (injections, surgery, etc) to help reduce pain.

Side and lower back pain in the groin, what exercises can I do?

Back pain: I would rest the back and hamstrings so upper body exercises can be done for now. If you don't aggravate your back doing them. If you do, stop and take a rest for a week. May take some over the counter advil (ibuprofen) and a hot bath and massage may help relieve the muscle pains. If this does not help see your physician.

I am 44 and have been experiencing pain in the left side of my groin and some lower back pain. What might be the causes?

Pos. Lumbar cause: Possibilities include nerve irritation that originates in your lumbar spine that is irritating the nerves that distribute to your groin. It could also be a a type of a localized nerve irritation along the groin like ilioinguinal neuralgia. Other specialists may give other causes like intra-abdominal causes or like muscular or myofascial pain that is irritating your lumbar plexus.

Have real bad pain in vagina and groin area and exstream lower back pain almost butt area?

Difficult: Pain is tough. Is it acute or chronic? If acute consider first the bladder. Sometimes pain can have more than one cause, did the onset occur simultaneously? Could it be menstrually related. This is a difficult one. Try 2 aleve (naproxen) 2x per day and go with bladder treatment if having to pee at nigh more than twice. It may be in the back, radiating to groin, may be muscular? Good luck.
