    See your doctor. Pretty sure he has time for x rays.

    I agree, call your doctor as soon as possible and make an appointment. Explain your sysptoms and pain and ask for an X-ray and or MRI.                                                                                                                                                                                             Sorry you are havng to go through this, being in pain is not esy. Rotating heat and ice mght help, which i am sure you are doing.
    Please keep us posted on how you are doing.
    Happy New Year to all!!

  • Sorry to hear you are in so much pain dlc68.

    Leg pain on standing could be connected to a lot of things, but you may want to research the nerve pathways in your legs and groin area.

    The advice given above about xray or MRI is good advice, especially if this is nerve related. Nerves do not liked being trapped and permanent damage can occur, so push for further investigation and immediately report any changes with bladder or bowel.

    The last time I visited my GP, he had a calculator on his computer screen, instead of my notes!!! Do not be pushed aside for money saving techniques employed by some doctors. You should not be left in pain.

    Good luck and let us know how things progress
