Hi,
Your shooting pain has nothing to do with femur fracture. You seem to have a disc prolapse which hitches on your leg nerves when you lift heavy weights.
But if your hip hurts, you need to consult an Orthopaedician as it could be an early sign of avascular necrosis (decreased blood supply to the hip). However if it were a hairline fracture, chances of avascular necrosis are less likely.
You need to avoid lifting heavy weights and do back strengthening exercises.

Dear,please see an orthopedic surgeon.A hair line crack in femur before 4 years can not lead to pain in back today.There has to some other reason like muscular sprain,some nerve compression or something else.Please get your self examined and take treatment accordingly.During delivery undiagnosed element can lead to more pain.

Hi, I got a stress fracture in my lower back 13 years ago and have had some sharp pain on and off ever since but never anything long lasting or unmanageable. However, recently I have been having pain consistently throughout the day due, I believe, to me carrying my son around. Is there any reason for concern that the fracture is still causing this much pain?

Hi I have been on birth control constantly for about 7 months now. I had a UTI almost a week ago and that has cleared up. My period is due in about 10 days and I am having pretty bad back aches. I had a BM today (first time in about 3 days) but I feel constipated. My stomach feels slightly hard all over. I also took a home pregnancy test last night and it was a very clear negative. Could i have an ectopic pregnancy? What could be the cause of my lower back pain?

30 years ago my right arm was injured by having a canopy door (for a pickup truck) collapse on a previous scar - which had completely healed for more than 15 years. 5 months after the accident, I was diagnosed with a condition called reflex sympathetic dystrophy (now called chronic regional pain syndrome). I m looking for published papers on the use of a drug called guinethadine, as I m going to college now and want to write a paper comparing the results between the use of electric shock (WWI - Yelland) and guinethadine. Can you help me?
