Sounds suspicious: For nerve root pain or sciatica. Would need an exam and good history to be able to tell. If either of these things, treatment may include imaging studies and prescriptive medication. Even though uninsured many physicians and hospitals have sliding scale fee structure based upon income. Don't think you have a choice unless otc medication and rest help resolve the pain. ...Read more

Im 37 weeks pregnant and having bad back pain also leg pain and shooting pain in bottom what does this mean?

Not unusual.: This is not unusual. Due to the pressure and stretching, as well as weight gain of pregnancy many women feel that way. Once you have the baby it will likely start to resolve(.just make sure you don't have signs of a blood clot in the legs-swelling, redness, tenderness, etc.) ...Read more

L5-S1 : L5-s1 disks can cause severe sciatic leg pain. I would recommend consultation with a spine surgeon if you have failed 3 steroid injections. Leg pain secondary to herniated disk usually responds well to surgery. There are many surgical options including traditional and minimally invasive surgery. I would recommend looking for a surgeon who is experienced in endosocpic minimally invasive surgery. Endoscopic treatment is not always an option, but it is worth exploring due to less tissue damage, quicker discharge and recovery and less post operative pain. Please see my health guide on disk herniations and sciatica for more information. Good luck! ...Read more

Sharp shooting pain down inside of left arm. Sporadic. Not other signs of heart issue. Have appt with orthopaedic doc wed for leg pain, mention this?

Yes: But wouldn't wait. Need to see a doctor sooner. No other heart issues is not sufficient of a statement and even if u were a doctor, you still need a cardiac work-up that includes, at least, an electrocardiogram. I would go to an urgent care center or emergency room. ...Read more
