I have pain in my low back radiating down my back to my knee on the left side. I also have pain on the left side in my hip area sometimes in the front abdomen going down my thigh, sometimes so severe that I can't walk. The pain is so sharp it takes my breath away. I also have bad knees. My left knee pops & clicks and hurts to where I can't always straighten it out.
I use a pillow beneath my knees for my back 'cause hubby had 3 back surgeries & told me a pillow helps ease the pain on the lower back.
I've always had sciatica, but since I quit work 14 yrs. ago I rarely have had any pain until now. I was born with scoliosis, but no problem with that either.
My knees are now giving me lots of trouble, i.e. pain & clicking, but my left hip was diagnosed with OP (osteoporosis)about 5 yrs. ago & I was wondering if that could be causing me pain in my gut & hip area down my leg to my ankle. I realize this is a lot, but can anyone help with suggestions? I have no insurance now & I am the sole caregiver for my hubby who has Parkinson's Disease & he's also had a stroke. He gets around pretty good, but he has short term memory loss & I take care of him so I need to find out which this is....Back...Hip...or Knee or is it all three!
