Severe Hip And Leg Pain
Unlikely, but...: Conceivably, an abscess in the pelvis can cause your symptoms, but very unlikely to be caused by a colonoscopy, more likely found by it. If you are concerned, a ct of the abdomen/pelvis may be indicated, especially if you are having fevers and had diverticulosis on your colonoscopy, but let your doctor know this is going on. ...Read more

Sorry : Sorry about your condition! you problem presents several diagnostic possibilities and, understandably, diagnosis will be impossible via this forum. You don't mention a few important details that will ultimately help your doctor in diagnosing your problem: 1. How long have you had the pain? 2. Is this episode unique? Is this similar to when you've had "blood clots" in the past? 3. Have you always noticed a leg length discrepancy or is this new? 4. Have you experienced any new trauma or are you aware of anything medically new elsewhere in your history (i.e. Recent congestive heart problems, new medications, and so forth).

Back : Back and leg pain can be caused by disks, stenosis, slipping of the spine (spondylolithesis), foraminal stenosis, spine fractures, etc. Most likely your right leg pain is from herniated l4-5 disk. Patients with disk herniations may benefit from giving time for the pain to settle, physical therapy, steroid injections and surgery. If the disk herniation did not respond to steroid injection then you should see a spine surgeon to discuss surgical options. There has been many advances in spine surgery and i would recommend looking into endoscopic spine surgery. Please see my health guide on lumbar disk herniations and sciatica. Maximum Ibuprofen dose varies on your weight and medical conditions i recommend discussing this with your doctor. Good luck! ...Read more
