Maybe someone can help me, please. Since February 2008, I have had severe pain in lower right side (quadrant). The pain goes right down my right leg and my right leg is swollen right down to my foot. I also have pain in my lower back. Alot of times the pain in lower right side is stabbing, sharp. I have had a laparoscopy and they did take my appendix out and also an exploritory and everything looked fine according to the surgeon. I also had a CT scan and it showed something is pinched a blood vessel or nerve. They suggested an MRI, which I did and it came back as a negative exam. When the doctor exams me and touches the bones down by my right pubis area it is so painful. Docter even took my right leg and lifted it straight up and the pain went right up my back, it felt just like a stabbing knitting needle going up there. Now my doctor is sending me for a bone scan of my whole body. I have had pain since October 2007, but it was never this bad, just once in awhile I had a sharp pain. I have been doing the same job for five years and since August 2007 they started rotating us, and this one area requires us to lift 50 lbs. just up over a lip about four inches from the floor. Since I have been doing this I have also been going to physio therapy for my left shouder and neck and elbow, something was pulled in there. Please if anyone reads this and is going through the same, please help me. I have had enough of the pain, and the waiting for all the appointments. I am also using a cane to walk with.:mad:

When it first happened to me I could barely walk for 3 months, then started taking muscle relaxants to get the muscles off the nerve and it helped- a lot... manageable with this, ice and rest, and there is a surgical procedure but doesn't always work... The sciatic nerves are the longest in the body and can be pinched by any swollen muscle. It can come and go and be hard to diagnosis. Look up one this website- wrongdiagnosis - for more info and see if it sounds like something you need to explore. GOOD LUCK !! I know how awful it is to have pain and not know what it is or what to do about it. Also, Never underestimate the power of ICe and Heat therapy.
