  • Not sure about the lips or shins, but hip and back pain especially if it shoots down your legs could be sciatica. It can cause tingling and numbness in your back, hips and legs too. And if your sciatica is caused by a pinched nerve, then that could cause other strange sensations, so maybe they are related? I've been dealing with sciatica for several months and it really is painful. I'm trying some physical therapy but so far it hasn't helped much. Hopefully you can find a treatment that works for you!
