Hi about 6 months or so ago I hurt my back and had pain in my groin, lower back and it was radiating down my left thigh. It did not come on Immediately in fact I can't really be sure if the injury I had is what caused the pain. I tried everything from pain killers to physio to get rid of the pain. They helped but the pain did not go away for 12 weeks.
Now days before I am going abroad for Christmas It's happened again. I have not visited my GP because I have only just moved into the area and have already visited Her twice in the few weeks I have been here and I still have the medication I used last time. I did how ever visit a Osteopathist who spent an hour with me and told me to put ice packs on it and do so stretching exercises.
Please can anyone tell my if this type of pain is common with a muscle injury and how is it that it effects the nerve. it's not like their is a bulging disc or anything. Also please can anyone tell me if their is anything I can do to make this heal quicker.
I really don't want to spoil my husbands holiday :-(
