Three weeks ago, I woke up on a bad spring mattress and had a stiff back for half a day, which was immediately followed by a sciatic pain (level 6) starting from right hip to knee and foot. There was pain in my right groin area and in right testicles. I showed my condition to doctor, who guessed it’s the sciatic nerve issue and mussel strain that is causing stress in groin area. Fortunately, groin pain eased in a day. Doctor asked me to take Advil and observe for a week.
I feel sciatic pain each morning as I wake up, even today. This pain subsides as I move along. But it’s present in mild to medium level throughout day.
For about 2 weeks, I felt sharp pain (level 7-8) in my right outer knee. Applying heat patches helps temporarily. This morning I had sharp pain in my lower calf area (level 8) for about 2 hours that eased after taking an Advil.
I am 32 years old, active, usually walk about 2-3 miles a day. Was thinking that pain will go off after couple of weeks. But its still there intermittently at about level 7.
Can you please suggest me, if I should see a Chiropractor? I plan to see my doctor tomorrow for further diagnosis.
Thanks in advance.
