I had a disc rupture, tear, protrusions L4- L5-S1 in 2007. Sciatica on Right. I had one MRI in 2007. It has gotten worse as no treatment was recommended and no PT. I never could go back to work. Now I am having pain in my ishial tuberosity,mainly on the right and sometimes groin, back of right knee and down to foot, The R leg always hurts but the behind the knee and groin and ischial pain is new, a few months now. The sciatica I know is from the back injury but what is causing the ischial tuberosity pain and urine retention and sometimes bladder (I think it is bladder but U/A is neg) pain? My Dr ordered another MRI and insurance refused. Now it hurts to do anything but lie down. I do stay up all day and walk around the block about 12-30 min in pain but not the ischial pain, that is mainly when sitting, just sciatica. I want to know what could be causing these new symptoms and iif it could be my back injury.
