So it all started in January where after sitting for a while my left leg started to tingle a bit. From then I could still bend and dance as normal (I am 19). Last week my dance classes resumed and I caused horrible pain to come.
It was down my lower back and down my leg when I bent forward or lifted my leg. A few days past and I got a lot better with only pain in my lower back next to my spine when I bent a certain way. Today it suddenly became worse after I lifted my 2yrd old niece. So I went to the doctor.
She examined me and asked me to lay on the bed and move my leg in certain positions. I have scoliosis with a 51 degree curve but she disregarded any part of my spine causing the pain. I have been googling. And thought I may have a herniated disc but maybe I'm just wrong. My brother has had a bulging disc before that was pinching his nerve and had to have surgery and he said his symptoms were very much like mine with pain next to the spine and not in the spine.
She ended up prescribing me anti inflammatory tablets and sending me for a hip X-ray which I had today. If I don't hear anything from her then nothing is wrong with my hip.
My question is:
Could it be a hip issue, what would have caused it. It's pain in my lower back and before lower back of my thigh shooting down my leg.
Or is it more likely a disc issue and should I go back ?
