If you guys don't mind I'd like to ask you what you think here on this new pain I had tonite...
When I first had serious back trouble in 2001 it started as severe pain in my left hip & down my left leg with burning in my foot & toes. When I went to my Dr. the 1st time i said I got hip trouble & he smiled & said no it is your back that is causing you to hurt there.
Well Tonight I was sitting reclined in my chair & my RIGHT hip started hurting & the pain went down my leg. I had to take an extra pain pill to get the relief I needed. The only thing different is that my right foot wasn't burning & stinging at the same time, but it has before plenty of times but I have never had pain in my right hip before.
I don't know alot but I thought that the sciatic nerve only went down the left side. Do we also have a nerve that runs all the way down the right side also?
Thanks for reading & have a nice night :-)

Have you got your MRI or XRAYs done. The pain could be because of slip disc. The spinal cord is the central nervous system, and controls the entire body. So have it examined. The NUPATCH, which has the same effect of Voveran Injection is also good for such pains. Have you tried Physiotherapy.

Yes, there is some nerve that runs along your right side. I thought it was called the sciatic nerve on the right side, too, but I could be wrong about that. I started the same as you w/ pain in my foot. If your PM has seen your scans, I would say he's probably dead on. If not, you might see a podiatrist just to be sure.

My pain runs from my low back (I think around L3/L4) down to my SI joint & then right around my body following my iliac crest, down along my hip & branches to the right along the outside of my leg & to the left along the inside of my leg which sometimes goes down to my knee, but not always. It goes down the outside of my right leg all the way down to the bottom of my heel. I've always been terrible in science, so I can't say how it all fits together, but I know it does. In any case, it should be treatable -- there are braces, orthotics, injections, meds, all kinds of stuff to help, so be sure to let your PM know.

If it's your back, maybe try PT. Here's the link to the page that helped me (of course, ask your doc before starting any exercise routine, blah, blah, blah):

It's a crazy page full of all sorts of wives' tales put forth as if they were scientific studies, so please don't buy into their claims, but the exercises are clearly described & really do work. My own PM & osteopath agree that there are legitimate medical reasons why they work, they're just not the reasons listed on the website.

There are also tendons along the outer sides of your foot and I ruptured my pb tendon a couple of years ago
and it still hurts from time to time, just not as bad as my back, but you should go and see a doctor in any case
and get some scans done...

It does sound like nerve pain. But you need to call your doctor and let him know. Maybe you should have a MRI atleast so you will find out for certain what is causing the pain.

I am sorry you are hurting. I am wishing you a day with low pain. I do hope that you feel better soon.
