Sharp pain in lower back, shooting down to knees, pain and bleeding on passing stools. Due to herniated disc or sciatica nerve?

Hello. Thank you for making yourself available to help others. May God reward you for your kindness. I have a really sharp pain in my lower back and it shoots down to my knees. When I try to poop, it is a really sharp pain. It just happened today all of a sudden and now I just noticed a few drops of blood when I pooped a few minutes ago. Is this possibly a herniated disk or problem with my syiatic nerve?

Hi welcome to HCMForum. It appears to be fissure in ano or infected internal piles.
Other possibilities are sciatica lumbar spondylosis or renal colic. But none of them
will have oozing of blood. So i advise you to consult asurgeon or orthopedic surgeon
for diagnosis and treatment. MRI PROCTOSCOPY along with other routine tests.
Besides i advise you some diet recomendations as avoid taking potato other tubers
tomato cauli flower coconut till you get relieved of pain. I hope my reply is satisfa-
-tory to you. wishing for a quick recovery.
