Question: Right Leg Pain From The right Hip Down To Foot Dont Seem To Go Away

Answered by Dr. Mahaveer Patil 25 minutes later
Brief Answer:
Possibility of a lumbar disc prolapse

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for posting the question.
I have gone through your medical history in detail.

We generally see many cases like this at our clinic.We give them rest,analgesics,anti-inflammatory tablets and ice packs till the pain reduces to some extent. Then we usually recommend an MRI of the lumbar spine to confirm the diagnosis.

In your case,there may be a compressed a nerve in the spine,possibly at L4-5-S1 lumbar spine levels that might be causing radiating pain in the back and right hip down to the foot.Possibility of a disc prolapse should be kept in mind.

I suggest you get an Xray as well as an MRI done to find out the exact cause.

Physiotherapy,analgesics,anti-inflammatory medicines should help till then.
Do get back to me after the reports are ready so that i can guide you further.

I hope the answer was useful to you.

Best wishes.
