Ridiculous Radiculis: It sounds as though your leg pain is being caused by nerves that are exiting your lower back. This is usually in the area of the lumbar and sacral areas. Known as a radiculopathy, when it affects the entire leg it can also be called sciatica. To remove all doubt, seek out a specialist to properly evaluate your condition and determine the proximal cause of the nerve irritation. ...Read more

What can I do for a pinched nerve I have on my lower back? It also goes down my right leg towards the back right above the knee.

What can I do for a pinched nerve I have on my lower back? It also goes down my right leg towards the back right above the knee.

Sciatica: Low back, buttock and "shooting" leg pain are all symptoms of a pinched nerve. It sounds like you may have that problem. If the pain is severe and limiting your activity still, the best non-narcotic medications that I have found to work for my patients are antiinflammatories such as Ibuprofen or Naproxen which are over-the-counter medications. Other non-narcotic medications include tramadol (ultram) which requires a prescription and nerve-pain medications such as gabapentin. These are all to be taken for temporary pain relief. This type of pain typically resolves with time. Ask your primary physician about these if the pain is still limiting you. If it is still going on for more than a month an MRI may be helpful to help sort out what is going on and there could be other potential treatments outside of surgery that could benefit you. ...Read more
