Sorry to hear that our team in the medical was not able to help you out.

It would have been really good if you had mentioned the details of the MRI reports as we could have understood something from it.

If you have any issue with the intervertebral disc and nerve entrapment.

Now since you are mentioning about pain in the hip, thigh, leg and back, I would like to know if the pain symptom is radiating in nature?

Also how is the back pain? Is the nature of the pain sharp shooting or dull aching. If dull aching then it will be related to muscle but if sharpshooting than it will be for nerve.

Now coming to an analysis of you, you mentioned your age is 38 so we can look for some Degenerative changes in the lumbar spine.

Due to which there might be changes of back pain and nerve getting trapped. for this I will recommend you to try out the exercise for the core, back and lower limbs on both sides.

It is mandatory to do exercise in any back pains or radiating pains as due to pain there is a muscle weakness which gets build up over a period of time and once the muscles are weak there is instability of the spinal column.

I wish you check for your blood glucose levels along with uric acid too so we can have a differential diagnosis made to rule out the possibility because.

If you can still mention in detail about the MRI it will be really kind of you.

In my clinical practice of over 12 years, many back cases associated with leg pain are doing well with conservative management. Like - exercise, physical therapy and yoga.

Outcome score is almost as desired to be. Please start the exercise and you will get a difference in the overall physical well being.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
