Sherrine's right, it's best to see a doctor first.
I had sciatica years ago and my chiropractor took care of mine. But you have to make sure, if you go that route in the future, to find a good chiropractor.
I also saw a physical therapy doctor recently who specializes in tight pelvic floor muscles. She helped my leg pain that began about a year ago. Here are the symptoms of tight pelvic floor muscles:
Urinary frequency, urgency, hesitancy, stopping and starting of the urine stream, painful urination, or incomplete emptying.
Constipation, straining, pain during or after bowel movements.
Unexplained pain in your low back, pelvic region, hips, genital area, or rectum.
Thank you for the information! I have been told to try physical therapy by a couple doctors, but I haven't gotten around to doing it yet. Perhaps I should! I have never seen a chiropractor and honestly, I am a little scared of seeing one. A friend of mine said she has a certificate for a free evaluation to a chiropractor and she wants me to go. I will have to think about
it! Thanks again.
