Thank you for trusting HCM

Dear pelvic pain that radiating to leg may be due to sciatica or femoral hernia or femoral nerve compression or Radiculopathy etc..

Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is.

Need ultrasound of pelvis and xray lumbar spine.
Use physiotherapy, nsaids and hit and cold compression.

If symptoms not improved please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Take care.

When I have to pass the wind or take a poop I start to have aching pains in the pelvic area. The pain makes it difficult for me to walk or to sit down. I try my hardest to ignore it but sometimes the pain is unbearable . Sometimes I hold my urine because I dont like going to the bathroom in some places, and my mom said that could be a possible reason. But I need a definately answer. The pain can last from 3-5 minutes to half a day.
