  • if you are feeling pain from your thigh to your foot, it sounds like sciatic nerve pain. did your doctor do a leg raise test to see if you have a herniated disc or piriformis syndrome? If PT isnt working, your dr should request an MRI to look at your spine ( if your leg raise tests positive).

  • Sounds like sciatic pain 

  • If you are getting physical therapy for a  misdiagnosed "muscle injury", you could do more damage if your pain is from a lower lumbar disc problem. If you have tingling in your feet, thats a huge sign that the sciatic nerve that runs down the leg is being impinged. See a physiatrist to make sure your physical therapy is treating the corrrect problem. My PT thought i had a muscle injury and was having me do exercises that were the EXACT OPPOSITE of what i should have been doing. There are simple leg raise tests, etc that a competent Dr can do to diagnose you.
