So my husband is having symptoms of a herniated disc. We are having a MRI next week. His symtoms are similar to mine but in different areas so I wonder about it. He is having horrible pain in his thigh muscle and then his hip he feels like the pain is in the joint of his hip. Is that something any of you have experienced with a herniated disc really bad hip pain that feels like it's the joint?
It started with horrible lower back spasms that we were in the ER for a few days ago. He was stuck on his stomach for 12 hours and would scream out in pain when even moving a little bit so I called an ambulance. He hadn't been to a doctor in 7 years so no doctor would prescribe anything for him and he needed something strong so going to the ER was the only option since he could not even get off of his stomach.
His back doesn't hurt anymore now it's moved to his thigh and hip. Mine was my butt and the back of my leg and my calf and foot. His may be a different nerve that is compressed so I just am wondering if the hip normally has pain like this with a herniated disc.
Thank you for your responses. I'm really worried about him. He's bed ridden right now because of it. Just since earlier this week. He looks really scared. I know how he feels I've been there.
