Morning! Well, I'm new...so Hello to all. I am also new to having a back issue. Didn't have traume, was weed eating on Monday for about 20 min, bent over to pick up a cup, and bam....back just went out...hobbled in, and was couch ridden for the rest of the day/night. The next day, I couldn't even bend over my back hurt so bad. So on Tuesday night, and continuing until today...this pain is completely in my right groin, down the FRONT of my right leg, down do and around my knee cap..and not so much my lower back. Hurts to walk, stand, or lay down in any position. Sitting down in a chair is about as comfortable of a position that I can get into. Went to Chiro yesterday and had XRay...suggests MRI, says that L5 looks 'worrisome'...
Is this weird to have referred pain down the FRONT of my leg? Does this sound like a pinched nerve?



  • Jim I also get pain in my right leg. Right now it feels like my thigh bone is broken. I have 3 herniated disks L4 3&2 Stenosis and DDD.
  • L3 4 & 5 sorry

  • Ouch! Is it down the front of the leg? Mine feels like someone is trying to chissel my knee cap off...
    I have not had an MRI done yet, so not sure what is going on. I have pulled muscles in my back before, and rest/time usually resolves it. But, this time....something is different. The right leg pain is very strange to me...but guess it isn't so uncommon. Just wasn't sure if the 'Front' of the leg was common. What is DDD?
    Thanks for the reply.
  • Nevermind on the DDD question...I looked it up. Guess I will just have to wait and see on the MRI. I hope and pray that it isn't too serious.
