Help. I have had pain in right low back radiating down right front thigh and knee. MRI done no pinched nerves - my regular doctor says she does not know why I am in such pain and recommends pain management doctor. But that doesn't tell me what is wrong or why I am having this terrible pain. Would welcome any suggestions

I have pain that radiates down buttock to side of leg and sometimes to my ankle, but it usually does not hurt until I lay down at night. Doctor said he could send me to Neurosurgeon but they would want to do surgery. Since my pain is only when I lay down, I think I will pass on the surgery for now! Been thinking about seeing a chiropractor.

Dr Gera has helped me so much! I definately recommend him. Wouldn't take the neighbor's cat to Savu. I never thought I would feel the way I have again, thanks to Dr Gera I feel good most of the time.

I am sorry to hear this. Have you sprained yourself lately? just to make sure its not anything serious that needed surgery like Depuy Pinnacle hip replacement. More information here at

Itís been quite some time since you posted your concern. I do hope that by this time you have found the cause of the pain and youíve started treatment. Itís a bit frustrating not knowing thatís causing the pain. Hope you feel better now.

Most probably your having the pain of iliopsoas bursitis which radiates down the front and middle areas of the thigh to the knee which is making the movement very difficult.

Anyone have anything like this? I am going round and round with the doctors right now...just wandered if anyone else was having this kind of fun.
You simply have a pinched nerve in your lower back. Pain management will not do anything but inject you with nerve blocking pain meds. That will not fix the problem. It will return as soon as the pain meds wear off. Dr. Gera does not help anyone permanately. You need to see a chiropractor like Dr. Myshka located on Caraway road. Just after a few treatments my pain was fixed. No more pain. This is the second time I have seen her for pinched nerves and both times she fixed me right up. i would not suggest surgery to anyone without trying a chiropractor first. i have a lot of friends whom have had neck and back surgery and now they are worse off more than ever.

I tore a muscle in my thigh that caused pain similiar to what you are describing. Took the doctors forever to figure it out...and a long time to heal. Still have some irritation from it, but I also have two ruptured disc as well that contributes.

Avoid Dr Savu like the plague. His injections/spinal blocks are off the mark. He won't help you. then, he will have you hooked on pain meds so that you have to continue monthly visits w him to get your rx. In between visits w him i tried 2 chiropractors that helped none. I had 2 rounds of physical therapy prescribed by 2 different help. Thank goodness with Dr Gera getting relief slowly and without narcotics.

Good luck! I understand your pain and frustration.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Sciatica (/saɪˈśt ɪkə/; sciatic neuritis)[1] is a set of symptoms including pain that may be caused by general compression or irritation of one of five spinal nerve roots that give rise to each sciatic nerve, or by compression or irritation of the left or right or both sciatic nerves. The pain is felt in the lower back, buttock, or various parts of the leg and foot. In addition to pain, which is sometimes severe, there may be numbness, muscular weakness, pins and needles or tingling and difficulty in moving or controlling the leg. Typically, the symptoms are only felt on one side of the body. Pain can be severe in prolonged exposure to cold weather.

Although sciatica is a relatively common form of low back pain and leg pain, the true meaning of the term is often misunderstood. Sciatica is a set of symptoms rather than a diagnosis for what is irritating the root of the nerve, causing the pain. This point is important, because treatment for sciatica or sciatic symptoms often differs, depending upon the underlying cause of the symptoms and pain levels.

The first known use of the word sciatica dates to 1451.[2]


Sciatica is generally caused by the compression of lumbar nerves L4 or L5 or sacral nerves S1, S2, or S3, or by compression of the sciatic nerve itself. When sciatica is caused by compression of a dorsal nerve root (radix) it is considered a lumbar radiculopathy (or radiculitis when accompanied with an inflammatory response). This can occur as a result of a spinal disk bulge or spinal disc herniation (a herniated intervertebral disc), or from roughening, enlarging, or misalignment (spondylolisthesis) of the vertebrae, or as a result of degenerated discs that can reduce the diameter of the lateral foramen through which nerve roots exit the spine. The intervertebral discs consist of an annulus fibrosus, which forms a ring surrounding the inner nucleus pulposus. When there is a tear in the annulus fibrosus, the nucleus pulposus (pulp) may extrude through the tear and press against spinal nerves within the spinal cord, cauda equina, or exiting nerve roots, causing inflammation, numbness or excruciating pain. Sciatica due to compression of a nerve root is one of the most common forms of radiculopathy.

Pseudosciatica or non-discogenic sciatica, which causes symptoms similar to spinal nerve root compression, is most often referred pain from damage to facet joints in the lower back and is felt as pain in the lower back and posterior upper legs. Pseudosciatic pain can also be caused by compression of peripheral sections of the nerve, usually from soft tissue tension in the piriformis or related muscles (see piriformis syndrome and see below).

Periformis syndrome. An ortho doc will inject the hip. You'll be good as new in about a week.

Pain from the top of my left thigh down to and through my knee. I've had a lumbar fusion 10 years ago & left hip replaced about 3years ago. Left work yesterday went to 2 doctors and was told a possible sprained muscle. Any thoughts or suggestions appreciated. Thanks

I do not have the pain you are describing, but I have something wrong at c6-7 and spinal stenosis. I am going to have surgery when I can afford it, but the pain switches sides. Very strange. It is vastly worse on the left, but then the right shoulder, arm, etc, will hurt for a day or two. You all really seem to know what you are talking about so I thought I would ask. Thanks and I hope your hip feels better soon. BTW, in the interest of full disclosure: my internist told me neurosurgeon or pain management so i chose neurosurgery and my internist is rx tramadol and 2 hydrocodones a day until I can pay for surgery. He is a very nice man at Clopton Clinic. Very good care there.
