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.

Nerve (Definition)

The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more

Is it a pinched nerve have pain n the front inner & side of thigh. Have pain n lower back, hips, pubic bone, groin area. Can decompression help this?

Depends: This depends on what your imaging reveals. Lumbar stenosis can cause back pain and pain into thighs which are worse with ambulation. Decompression can help this with or without a fusion depending on your specific image and exam. However you are very young for something like this to happen. Please be seen and evaluated.

Low prob for clots, ddimer neg, dr thinks numbness from knee into foot, slight ache in inner thigh is pinched nerve. Is ddimer secure test for clots?

D dimer - screening: D dimer is only a screening test. Confirmation of a blood clot should be done through a doppler ultrasound. Discuss with your doctor if he would consider ordering a doppler ultrasound of the lower extremity that is affected.

Could a pinched nerve anywhere n my back or lower back cause pain achey feeling in the front & side of my thighs only?

Yes: A nerve root at the L3 or L4 level can cause thigh pain if it is pinched. This can be due to a disc or osteophytes pinching the nerve.

NCV: A MRI is the standard imaging test but a nerve conduction velocity/ EMG is probably the most sensitive test for nerve impingement. A good physical examination combined with your history will go a long way as well. See a medical professional.

What do you do for a pinched nerve in the hip or thigh area?

What do you do for a pinched nerve in the hip or thigh area?

Piriformis: Lumbosacral disc disease can cause pain that radiates into the buttock and down the leg. Compression of the sciatic nerve by the piriformis muscle in the butt cheek can do the same but pain rarely goes below the knee. There are exercises that help stretch the muscle to take pressure off the nerve. If pain radiate to the foot, see a doctor. Pain can radiate form the hip to knee if tfl is tight. Pt.

Lwr back, top of butt pain, at times wraps around to hip, side, down into butt, front of thigh. At times one side, at times both. Pinched nerve?

Lwr back, top of butt pain, at times wraps around to hip, side, down into butt, front of thigh. At times one side, at times both. Pinched nerve?

See your doctor: It could be a nerve problem, but equally it could be a root problem and anything in between. There are other disorders that could predispose to symptoms such as these, so getting a good history and physical exam would be important to evaluate this completely.

I am a dancer, and I have a pinched nerve directly behind my right thigh from doing an improper heel stretch. How do I fix it so I can move on?

NEED DIAGNOSIS: Not clear if you possess a chronic hamstring strain/sprain or a true "pinched nerve" over the thigh, which might be a peripheral sciatica or even a pyriformis syndrome. Proximal nerve compression at lumbar or buttock levels may well be referred to post. Thigh, and sacro-iliac dysfnctn may also be hard to pin down. Maybe get consultation with osteopath and consider some testing.

What's the best medicine for thigh pain? Not sure if it's a pinched nerve or muscle spasam. I just know it's been hurting for 3 days. Extremely achey!

What's the best medicine for thigh pain? Not sure if it's a pinched nerve or muscle spasam. I just know it's been hurting for 3 days. Extremely achey!

Thigh pain: There are many reasons for this pain, but nsaids and stretching with positional changes multiple times per day is probably best for now. Try to continue with activities as usual, except for strenuous lifting and lost of bending, to prevent things from getting worse. Wait for about a week before seeking help if you can tolerate it... Good luck!

Feels like l get a shiver in my thigh. I have a pinched nerve in lower back. Low iron levels. What could be causing this feeling?

Feels like l get a shiver in my thigh. I have a pinched nerve in lower back. Low iron levels. What could be causing this feeling?

Thigh shivers: If these are muscle twitches, localized muscular or superficial nerve irritability is likely. If frequent diffuse muscle twitches or cramps occur, deficiencies of calcium, magnesium and potassium must be ruled out. I don't think it's a symptom of iron deficiency. The pinched low back nerve may be a factor, however. A neurologist could evaluate you for this.

If I have a pinched nerve n my L3 or L4 can this b corrected by decompression or physical & osteopath manipulation therapy? Achey pain n front thighs.

Lumbar Disk: 70-80% of lumbar disk herniations will improve without surgery, especially in a woman. Try to avoid activity which increases pain down your leg to allow the nerve an environment to heal faster. Rest, physical therapy, non and steroid medication, and traction (decompression) are all proven nonsurgical treatment options.

I have pinched nerve in thigh causing foot drop ever hear of this?

I have pinched nerve in thigh causing foot drop ever hear of this?

Peroneal: Peroneal neuropathy can cause a foot drop and the most common site of compression is the site where the nerve wraps around the fibula. Generally removing the pressure, splinting, and physical therapy can be helpful. But have you had this confirmed with electrodiagnostic testing? I would recommend it to be sure as there are other potential causes of foot drop.

I woke up with sore thigh to touch no marks and burning feeling when walking up hill or bending over could that be pinched nerve?

I woke up with sore thigh to touch no marks and burning feeling when walking up hill or bending over could that be pinched nerve?

Yes: Yes it could be pinched nerve from lumbar spine or from pinched nerve due to tight belt pressing on the nerve coming out of the skin above the thigh. There might be other causes as well.

Could a pinched nerve cause numbness, tingling and sharp shooting pains in the front/outer thigh area? There is also tender swelling around the knee.

Short answer YES: The short answer to your question is yes. The longer answer to your question is you need to be thoroughly examined by a neurologist and possibly undergo electrical as well as imaging diagnostics. Feel free to follow my webpage at www. Healthtap. Com/Drsaghafi choosing key code: PDXFNR in order to make a calendar appointment.

I have severe lower back pain and sharp shooting pains down the back of my upper thighs. Mri and x rays show nothing. Could this be a pinched nerve?

Yes: A normal mri usually means that you don't have a pinched nerve due to a disc or arthritis but you can still have a pinched nerve in other areas like your buttocks muscle, ie. Periformis syndrome.
