Hello!

Thank you for the query.

Such symptoms usually appears if there is spine problem (herniated spinal disc). It causes nerves compression and gives back pain radiating to the legs with numbness and superficial sensation disturbance. Nausea can also appear due to urinary tract stones. This pain appears suddenly, radiates to the lower abdomen and one side groin. Frequent urinating and pain during urinating appears.
It is advisable for you to go to ER and have check if the spinal compression is urgent. MRI should be performed. Abdominal ultrasound and urine analysis is also advisable.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.

My sister just had an MRI and it states the ill-defined high T@/Flair signal areas in cerebral white matter bilateraly, especially in the frontal lobes. Would you put this in simple terms. She was diagnosed w/a grade II astrocytoma in June 2011 & underwent radiation. Currently on Avastin.

I have had a right leg gait issue for years even following a partial laminectomy 8 years ago. My most recent (last week) MRI revealed a 5mm posterocentral L 4-L 5 soft tissue abnormality extending 5mm to the superior disc level and a 2-mm central disc bulge L 5-S 1. Both are on the right side of the discs. Is this something a neuro surgeon can correct?
