I started experiencing pain when i walked in the top part of my right leg (in the crease where my leg joined my pelvis)I would have my husband rub it. It is very sore-- like a bad pulled muscle--but much more tender. Then the pain started radiating to the side of my leg. It hurts bad when i move my leg quickly inward and outward. A sharp piercing pain in the hip and side of the leg. The pain eases when i lie down-- but when i get up in the morning Iam so sore and stiff in the hip and the very top of my leg. I finally went to the dr.--because the pain was getting so bad. when i sit down i have a hard time getting up. Also, when i lift my leg to get in the car the pain is brutal. anyway, the orthopedic dr. ordered an MRI of both my hip and lower back. it showed the pain is coming from the lumbar region of my back. I have degenerative disc disease. the discs have collapsed and are pressing on the nerves that radiate to the area i described. please somebody that has the same problem write me back and tell me your story. i am 42 yrs old -- not old enough to be down like this. give me some info if you can.
