Diagnosed trapped nerve in back, shooting pain in leg. Feeling of hip going to crack. Treatment?

Hi. Over a month ago I was diagnosed with a trapped nerve in my back, the problem was me getting a shooting pain down my right leg from the pelvis to the ankle. It was so severe that I couldn t lift my leg vertically off the ground whilst standing. It has eased up slightly now however I still suffer with pain in my leg, what feels like my hip is also cracking along with my back and neck . I m only a 31 old male and starting to worry Thank you.

Thanks for writing to us
All the symptoms in your description typically suggests a Lumbar disc disease with radiculopathy.

I suggest you to have MRI scan of lumbar spine to know the exact pathology. The management protocol depends on the severity of nerve compression.

Temporary pain relief can be obtained by using an appropriate analgesic or muscle relaxant ,Pregabalin & methylcobalamine supplements.

Consult an orthopedic surgeon for further workup and management.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
