New lower back pain!? What is it!?

Hello! I have a question about new symptoms. I have DDD, arthritis, scoliosis and herniated discs. Anyway, Ive had pins and needle sensations, tingling, shooting sciatica pain, numb spots and hot feet. Recently my epidural steroid injection wore off and I was back to crawling on my hands and knees cleaning. I tried getting up by using my back to lift my upper part off my knees and I felt “a pulling sensation”. The only way I can describe it is, in my lower back to the left of my spine. It pulls from my lower back, through my buttocks and roughly to inner thigh. In that range. It almost feels like a cotton string in there and someone’s pulling it and it’s getting caught through that path. It “pulls” when I cough, laugh, bend upwards, (picking something up) and when I arch my back. It’s not super painful almost like a burning dull pain. It goes away after activity is done. 


Sorry this was the best way I could explain it! TIA Sam

    I agree with David, you need to notify your surgeon of these new symptoms. Especially the tingling and numbness. 
    Take cake and keep us posted.

  • Thanks for the responses! I truly hate going to my pain management doctor. I feel he does not listen and won’t help with my pain. These sensation has been going on for about 3 months. I had an MRI last July which told me about everything I already know. I’m not so sure they will order me a new MRI. The feeling is very scary to me.

  • I’ve never had surgery on my back. Just 3 csections, a gallbladder removal, it caused a bile leak to two more survived following that.

    You can still get a second opinion with your original surgeon or a new one or even a neurologist, one that will do more testing.
    Hang in there and good luck.
