Pain in left leg while standing for more than 10-15 minutes

ShovindraSShovindra Posts: 1

I am new member of this site and having pain in one leg while standing more than 10-15 minutes. And if i continue standing than feel numbness also in the same leg. After sitting down to 10 minutes everything get normal. In the morning after waking up i also feel pain in the lower back and not able to stand up properly but after sometimes it get normal.

Is this indication for serious problem?

Can someone advice what could be the reason for this pain? and should i contact to doctor (please mention which specialist).

I used to sit 8-10 hours in the office daily, also not used to do any kind physical exercise regularly but doing daily routine work normally.


  • Obviously you feel something is wrong and not normal so you get a professional opinion. Based upon your description in can be so many things and only a doc can narrow it down with some simple in office tests.

    Has this something that just started happening or after a trauma?

  • Normally we are required to see a general practitioner or family doc for the initial evaluation. Depending on what the doc finds or does not find, he/she may refer you to see a specialist. It's very commonplace for the GP to prescribe pain killers, muscle relaxers and an anti-imflammatory along with a short period of rest followed by Physical Therapy. Depending on how your body responds or does not respond to this, the doc will then make further recommendations, run further tests and give out referrals.

    Fortunately with the spine there are very few cases where it is considered an emergency. Those are generally cases of paralysis or loss of bowel and bladder control. Pain itself is not normally considered a medical emergency. So don't be surprised if it takes time to whittle away through the system until you see a specialist or get the help you feel is right on target.

    Since you are experiencing radicular symptoms, it wouldn't hurt to make an appointment to see your doc and have it evaluated. Sometimes we have more issues than we are aware of because we focus on the sensations we feel and miss other signs and symptoms.
