I had a severe fall 2 years ago and have chronic low back pain , disfunctional SI joint , and torn achilles tendon . I ve had surgery for achilles tear, and also gastroc recession on same leg. Now I m having weird like shocking and water running feeling in my upper thigh area......................workers comp has scheduled me for FCE in a week and my pain is unbearable. They said I m as good as I m gonna get. They refuse to send me to Nuerologist. My life will never be the same I m only 51 and scared I will decline fast and never have a pain free day. I have burning constant pain very low back and in my tail bone area too.

You are best to have an MRI of the lumbar spine which can evaluate the spine and more importantly, if there are any nerve root entrapments which can result in 'shocking' pain you describe. You should be referred to a spinal/back surgeon who can arrange this scan and treat you accordingly
