I have had this condition of pain or some form of pinched nerve in my lower left hip and left lumber spine. The pain travels along the front of my left thigh to my left knee. One of my regular physicians diagnosed it as Meralgia Paresthetica and recommended shot to the groin and back, but nothing helped. Doctors at Kaiser spent a lot of time doing mulitiple scans (MRI and CAT scan) but they cannot see anything. The pain is felt around my lower left spine and goes around my left hip, down my left thigh and to my knee. Sometimes it is a lot of tingliing and irritation. Nothing has helped so far. It is either an irritated nerve somewhere or a pinched nerver I guess. I am baffled that the doctors cannot find a diagnosis and cure for this constant pain. The pain is constant and never goes away. I still play and walk and run and it is always there. I tried physical therapy, chiropractic treatment, cortisteroid shots under x-ray to the spine and through the groin, but to no avail. I will really appreciate any help on this issue. Has anyone else had something like this? Help!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
