PCOS. Pain in right hip, groin, back radiating to knee, calf. Told it was sciatica. Opinion?

Hi I am 35 years old, female and have PCOS . Since June, 2011, I have had pain in my right side - lower back, hip and groin . Sometimes the pain goes down my leg to my knee or calf , sometimes in the front and sometimes in the back. When I sit too long my groin hurts but if I stand or walk too long my lower right back and hip hurt. Heating pads sometimes help. I don t know if its sciatica , bulging disks (which run inmy family but no one ever has a problem this young) or maybe an ovarian cyst? I ve mentioned it to my GP and he told me it was sciatica but didn t even look at melt do any tests. I m going back next week but I just thought I d see what another doctor would say. Thanks!

hello nicole..
welcome to healthcare magic..

wel from your above depicted symptoms.. itz quite clear that the pains which you are having is not due to ovarian cyst because the pains from ovarian cyst may be radiated to back , hip and groin but not upto the calf area... it wil radiated only only above the knee...

and as u said bulging discs and sciatica runs in your family its quite likely that u may be having the same too..

i suggest you to go soon to a nearby orthopaedician and get it examined, on examination it wil be clear and confirmed by proper radiological investigations... till then dont lift heavy objects esp while bading forward and take rest..

i hope i solved ur query..

i wish u get well soon..:)

take care..
