I am looking for anyone who experiences severe pain in their buttock when they try to straighten their leg out and any ideas what you might think is the cause. For some time I have been seeing Doctor's to get a Diagnose for what is going on with no success.
There is also pain, burning, aching pain in the hip, butt, groin, leg down to my knee. I did some research on here and found a lot of great stuff but I cannot seem to get a clear picture.
Had a MRI and X-rays of the lower back, hip and pelvis showed DDD, cysts, arthritis, bulges, balance issues (the last Doctor said none of that is causing my problems) but nothing shows any problems with the SI joint. This is all on the left side up to a couple of weeks ago and now is moving to the right side. I am scared at this point with doing anything creating pain from hell.
I know you can't help me diagnose it but I sure would like maybe if someone has had these same type of problems what did they end up finding out.
This Forum is my hope since I have seen a lot of Doctor's (4 guess that is a lot) injections, therapy, swimming with no relief. I use a lot of ice and pain medication to get some relief. My hope is to find ways I can lessen the pain (not pain medications), I have and continue to use all the wonderful tool listed on here and from others suggestions. Also so many medications I can no longer take many due to the condition my stomach is in now.
I have never had surgery or dealt with so much of the things others do, so I am not too much support for others and pain makes it hard to focus or think so to ask you for help even makes me feel guilty.
I pray for you all and hope things are bearable if not good for you today.
Thanks for all of you and what you do to help.
Take care Sherri
