leg pain

Does a person have to have back pain if it is herniated. I have terrible front leg pain and wondering if it is coming from back

    in many situations folks with herniated discs do not have back pain to speak of. They may have hip pain, leg pain, etc.
    Its hard to diagnose if you have a disc problem without some concrete clinical examinations.
    Those are the exams that can identify if you have any muscle weakness, potential neurological weakness, etc.

    If your problem continues, I would start with your Primary Care Physician to see what they come up with. They can determine the best course of action after that.

  • I wouldn't wait a long time to see your doc. I think the sooner you're treated, the better off you'll be. I would get a second opinion from an orthopedist. He can move your leg around to see if it's nerve comperssion from a herniation.
