I posted here about a year ago with problems with my left leg, knee and foot. Im still trying to figure out whats up.
Symptoms (all left side): Foot swollen/pain, pain in my left thigh, sharp pain in my hip/groin.
The swelling is gone when I wake up, but the pain and stiffness is 24/7. Sometimes its just the foot problems, but other times I have a lot of discomfort in my hip/groin area while walking.
So far I've done a back MRI, compression test, arterial dopler, vascular ultrasound.
My Dr seems to think it related to my back, So I went and saw a back specialist who ordered the MRI. He says he see's mild decompression but nothing major. Im really frustrated. Im getting ready to be a father for the first time, and I need to stay active. Im not sure where to go next. Podiatrist or Neurologist ?
one more note: I've been following my dr's advice and doing back exercises. But I notice when Im moving around on the floor, sometimes I'll be sitting indian style and feel a TON of pressure on my left hip. And then it will pop, and I can feel it reverbarate through my thigh. Almost like my hip was out of place, and then popped back in???
Im really getting frustrated and feel like giving up.
