I am 53 years old and had disc surgery 25 years ago in between 3 and 4 in the lumbar region. My family has a big history of ruptured disc problems. The past year my left hip has been aching. Now for the past couple months not only is my left hip aching but my lower left leg aches deeply, but no numbness. Sometimes I have trouble getting asleep or staying asleep. It seems to be getting worse. Should I try a chirpractor or should I go to my family orthopedic and have a MRI taken
