I was just diagnosed with uterine fibroids today and I'm having horrible pelvic pain that radiates to my back down my leg. Should I be worried?

Need further eval! Fibroids are very common benign masses of uterus. They may cause feeling of pelvic heaviness or pressure symptoms on adjacent structures such as urinary frequency, stress incontinence, retention, & constipation. Few cases of sciatica (back pain going down the leg) caused by direct compression of the lumbosacral trunk by fibroids have been reported. Given severity of your pain, please see a doctor!
