Pinched sciatic nerve. Pain all over leg. Massage, hot compressing, stretching and what more?
I have what im pretty such is a pinched sciatic nerve , as the pain is travelling down my right leg, through my knee and ankle. My pelvis is very painful. I also have a large bruise on the muscle next to where my spine is sore. This has now been happening for over a week. Ive tried hot compresses, massage, streching and I just cant get pain to go away. Help!
HI...YOUR SYMPTOMS ARE POINTING TOWARDS DISC PROLAPSE....GET CONSULTATION WITH AN ORTHOPAEDICS SURGEON AND GET ONE MRI DONE.YOU WILL REQUIRE DEDICATED PHYSIOTHERAPIST.YOU MAY REQUIRE SURGERY IF THERE IS SIGNIFICANT COMPRESSION OF NERVE BY THE DISC.
