Question: I have been having lower back on the left side and I can feel it some in my hip I suffer from sciatica and today after church I started having horrible pain in my right leg and in my hip and every time I walk and put my foot down I am not able to walk without pain in every step even when I'm sitting. It hurts so bad I am having to use my moms stroller that she uses to help her walk. What should I do help?

Hip arthritis or spine spondylosis

Detailed Answer:
Hi there

Thanks for the query

It appears that you could be having a hip pathology.

I would advise you to use a walking stick in the opposite side while walking. Apply hot packs to the affected region.

Get an Xray of the hip AP and Lateral views and also of the lumbosacral spine.

Do upload the reports for my review. We need to rule out arthritis.

I hope I have answered your query.

I will be available to answer your follow up queries.

Please get MRI of the lumbosacral spine. This can be used as evidence of your disability.
