It started with severe back pain and nummness and pain down right leg, chiroprictor made back better, was pinched nerve. Still having pain right thigh?

Leg pain: Your chiropracter helped the muscle pain, but it sounds like something else is going on. I would suggest you see your family doctor, an neurologist or an orthopedist and evaluate further. Nerves can be pinched by many things, including disc fragments, bone spurs and even tumors. ...Read more

My back went out and I still have paine on my leg?

My back went out and I still have paine on  my leg?

Doctor can evaluate: A back problem that includes leg pain should be evaluated by a primary care doctor, who can then refer the patient to a physical therapist, orthopedic doctor (regular or back specialist), pm&r doctor (physical medicine & rehabilitation), and/or neurology doctor. The leg pain may be due to pressure on nerves coming out of the spine, which can lead to permanent leg problems if not corrected soon. ...Read more

Ice, rest, see doc: I think the same general principles apply here as in any type of trauma. Since, you are not apparently disabled at this point in any significant way I don't see the absolute need to go to an emergency room unless you'd like to take advantage of having met your deductible for the year with your insurance and try and get as much medical service as possible? Ice to the back, rest, and call your doc. ...Read more

I got shot by a gun 6 years ago and i still have sharp pain going up my leg to my lower back what should i do?

Get re-evaluated: See a Primary Care provider and explain your symptoms to them. Depending on the location of the injury they may order additional imaging tests to get more information. Don't just treat the pain with narcotics after 6 years of pain. If that's all they offer get a referral to an interventional pain specialist who may have more longer-term solutions rather than just more opioid pain pills. ...Read more

Back still giving me problems. I've included the MRI results. The more active the more likley my back acts up especially with pain shoting down my leg?

BACK ATTACK: The complex motions of the spine make it susceptible to injury in many locations. The supporting soft tissues and powerful muscles also are at risk. If imaging did not disclose an abnormality, that does not mean one doesn't exist. Alternative therapies like accupuncture, manipulation and massage can help. Radiating pain suggests nerve involvement and a physician should do an exam to be sure. ...Read more

Vasculitis: This may be an autoimmune vasculitis where small blood vessels in the skin(capillaries) rupture and leak blood. Since only your lower legs are involved, a rheumatologist or hematologist is qualified to evaluate,advise and treat you. Appropriate tests will be ordered. If you had generalized purpura, a blood dyscrasia would be likely and a hematologist would then be recommended instead. ...Read more

I had RT. leg pain..went to GP she sent me for an ultrasound. Color Doppler came back negative for DVT. Should I still be worried? I think the dull ache I have is coming from my lower right back..

I had RT. leg pain..went to GP she sent me for an ultrasound.  Color Doppler came back negative for DVT.  Should I still be worried? I think the dull ache I have is coming from my lower right back..

Neg DVT; Rt Leg Pain: How long have you had the symptoms? Is your whole right leg involved or just one part (thigh vs calf)? Since your U/S was negative, you shouldn't be fearful. Short course of oral steroids (7 days) or Toradol (5 days) could help knock out this aching if your symptoms diffusely involve the whole right leg. If localized, to calf, might benefit from topical diclofenac gel instead of oral med. ...Read more

What to do if i've been having pain right where the hip joins the top of my leg.The pain is more towards the back. Could this still be hip pain?

Possible: Hip Joint pain generally is in the front of the leg or groin area where the leg meets your true hip. If it hurts in the back of the leg/buttock junction it could be sciatica (pinched nerve), spinal facet joint pain, sacroiliac joint pain or even piriformis muscle pain. I would suggest to be evaluated fully you should see a spine specialist to address your concerns appropriately. ...Read more

Could four d-dimer test over the course of 3 weeks be wrong. \u0026#40;they're coming back normal\u0026#41; still have leg pain though. Very worried.

It depends,,,: It depends on the kind of leg pain and why these tests were done. If your leg pain comes from walking and being on your feet and it's warm or hot to touch you should see a doctor fast and possibly go to the hospital for a blood clot issue, but if it's nonspecific, then it's likely not urgent. You're on pain meds so it might be a neurological issue. So see your dr. Soon to be sure. Good luck. ...Read more
