Sounds like sciatica, if I were you I would skip the neurosurgeon and try and find a good chiropractor first. A good chiropractor may be able to help you avoid surgery. Also he/she will not send to pt. My p.t. gave me all the wrong exsercises and made my pain worse. It was when I found a good a chiropractor was when the pain started to decrease and I increased my function. good luck achilles2
I have the same problems! My chiropractor found out a few years back that my left pelvic problem was due to my pelvic bone kept falling out of socket due to my back problems! The pain in my leg would get so bad I thought I was going to vomit(gross, I know) but that's how bad it got. Almost three years later and this is the answer I got:
I have multiple herniated discs and narrowing of my lumbar. I see a surgeon tomorrow morning.
Did you ever find out what was hurting your back? I'm all hunched over and can hardly, after minutes of struggle, stand up. I've seen a physical therapist for 4 months and a chiropractor for 3, but that all ended a few months ago. It's getting worse, when I didn't think it could. I haven't fell or anything and I'm not in manual labor. This all just gradually came on.
