Greetings from HealthcareMagic!

May be a case of radiculopathy. You should, if I may suggest go for MRI-D/L spine.And stop bending,squatting and you can take analgesics sos
with MRI report can consult a orthopedic.

I am having terrible pain in my left side above my waist. It also goes around to the same place in my back. Do you have any ideas? I have had a total hysterectomy, Gall bladder taken out, thyroid removed, parathyroid removed, back surgery 9 years ago.

66 yr old female with Fibro and Sjogrens. Also in a walking boot which is saving me from amputation. Not diabetic....old injury to ankle and nothing left to work with. Been in the boot for three years....only for walking or work...don t wear it at home because I m very sedimentary. I m having a severe pain in my booted leg that I ve never had before. Feels like it s behind my knee cap and goes down the right side of my left leg. Trying to figure out if this is just a horrible new Fibro symptom.....a blood clot.....gout....etc.

Hello; I have had a periodic stinging pain, left side below the waistline for the last 12 hours. The sting lasts a few seconds but returns in a minute or up to 2 minutes later, sometimes longer. At this time, it s an irritation, concern, nothing painful enough to go for medical treatment, but enough I m searching online medical files. The intensity of pain has not increased over this 12 hour period, just this continuous ping/sting. And of course I have travel plans in two days, which adds to the concern of whether this is something that will delay those plans. Thank you, Gloria
