Hello all. At about the age of 20, I started to develop lower back pain. Nothing serious and barely noticeable. However, it has consistently gotten worse. Now at 22, I have episodes where the back pain is okay, but other times it feels like a pinched nerve. It's hard to get out of bed etc. this issue is a bit different though. I ride show horses & ride my rope horse. I was riding one day & went to swing my leg over the saddle and my leg suddenly felt weak. Not awfully weak, but I had to remove my boot from the stirrup and get on the horse again. I had the usual soreness after riding, & noticed a sharp pain from the outside/inner portion of my thigh, into the side and back of knee only on left side. It has consistently gotten worse & now can be felt into my ankle & right above my on the back. It improves with walking & lying straight or on my side. However, getting up, bending over to put on my shoes, putting pants on, and sitting hurt. Only on the left side though. This has never happened & im wondering if any of you had similar issues with sciatica? I haven't formerly been diagnosed as the pain has been somewhat manageable with walking and some stretching.. But now that it's getting worse, I am considering a dr. Visit. Sorry for the long post btw! I felt that the details would help!
