Postby oldhen » Wed Dec 27, 2006 8:16 pm

Hi I have had a time First thought my injury was from heart cath but I stiil am having severe pain in leg when I get up from chair and get up from bed.

I advise you to seek neurological consultation.

This pain could be due to:

Pathologic diseases affecting hip joint and cause pain may range from a muscle or tendon strain to, osteoarthritis, to more serious conditions like femoral neck stress fracture.
MRI is of choice in diagnosis.

In MRI negative individuals, inflammation of the sacroiliac joint is suspected and special tests and maneuvers can help in the diagnosis.

- Herniated disk, in which the inter-vertebral disc press on the nerves & other spinal disorders should be excluded.
MRI is of choice.

Direct neurological examination is very important.

Keep us updated.

Hi I went to the doctor last Thursday and they took an xray of hip nothing wrong.
Then they sent me for MRI this morning. I stopped at the desk and had the girl ask if my primary doctor could prescribe me something for pain. So she asked and he said NO not untill he gets the results of the MRI why is that why do I have to suffer in excrutiating pain?
They told me they thought it is a pinched nerve in my lower spine wrapping around down my inside of groin and down leg.
They also said sciatiaca but I don't have pain in the back of my leg.
Any suggestions how I can get some medicine would sure be nice.
