Hello and welcome to Just Answer.
In order to be able to help you better, could you please tell me
What exactly happened with you yesterday
Do you often visit your chiropractor
Any problems prior to this
Have you maintained a control over bladder and stools
Any other serious medical illnesses now or in the past
Yesterday, my lower back was inpain, as soon as I got out of bed. It has happened in-frequently before this; I have been with this chiropracter for 20+ years, & trust him implicitly. I do have control over my bladder & bowels (he, also inquired about that today, before treating me). No other serious illnesses except IBS affect my life-style; but Dr. Hunt did suggest today that these symptoms could be signs of extreme stress, due to a fall/winter full of repeated problems with my disabled husband. But...this degree of pain??? esp. now, where my leg meets my hip.
Thank you for your consideration of my pain, Dr.
Thanks for all the additional information.
Are you able to turn your leg, or lift it from bed, or put weight on it?
Are you able to walk?
Did you suffer from osteoporosis?
Yes, I can turn it, , etc. I do not have osteo.
I have told you all details that I feel are pertinent to my pain problem. Do you have any possible answers for me....otherwise, I cannot sleep & feel frightened enough to go to Hospital ER.
Without having the benefit of a clinical examination, I just wanted to be sure that we are not missing out a fracture of neck femur, which is quite common at your age. Moreover you had mentioned it that the pain is where the leg meets the hip,
However, since your pain is quite severe, as such you will have to visit the ER now. It may increase in severity. It could be sciatica because of ¾ “ out of line finding by your chiropractor. Yes for that you need to go to ER and moreso to stabilize the vertebrae so that they can no more cause further harm.
