Degenerative disc, trochanteric bursitis in hip, pain in leg and genitals
Hi..I am a 49 year old woman with degenerative disc disease and greater trochanter bursitis in my left hip. I am currently experiencing pain up and my left leg and also on the left side of my genitals. Is this all related to both of my ailments?
Trochanteric bursitis can cause referred pain down along the lateral (outside) of your thigh. Other pains in groin or lower limbs can be due to disc disease if it is causing impingement on particular nerve roots. Best to get an MRI of lumbar spine to correlate with symptoms
