I get pain in various places on my right leg. The lower right back, the side of the **m cheek, right under the **m cheek, above the knee, the side of the knee and the shin. The pain varies and may not effect all these areas at the same time. The pain tends to be a sharp throbbing pain, kind of like a headache and it will come and go normally with a gradual build up. I also experience alot of stiffness in my legs.
Recently I went to a chinese herbal doctor and he believed the sciatic nerve was the cause and advised me that accupuncture, heat treatment and pressure massage could cure or help it. He advised that I would only need the one visit so I agreed to this and went ahead with the treatment. After the treatment I was told I would need another 7 sessions on a weekly basis to completely cure it so I was reluctant as I was not 100% sure of his diagnosis. For 1 week i was pain free and never had a problem but after that I was back to square one.
Are these the symptoms of siatica? From what I read the sciatic nerve does not effect the shin, aswell as this if I am experiencing pain i can normally ease the pain off when I play football although sometimes it will come back worse afterwards. There have been times when the pain is around the upper thigh/side of the **m and when I'm walking very occasionally i have felt as though my leg was giving way around this area, although it never has, kind of like walking of a kerb without knowing the kerb was there.
These might be seperate issues that i am going to mention now but will do incase they are related.
1. I get lower back pain when driving.
2. just recently i am now getting a sharp pain in the upper spine (only occasionally when im driving) and this will also occasionally give me pain in my upper right arm.
I hope someone can help or at least tell me what they think as I need to find out what options i have or what the best treatment is.
