lower back, pelvis, all the down right leg for the past 6 mo

This answer was rated:

my husbands been severly hurting in lower back, pelvise, all the down right leg for the past 6 mo. but in the past month it has enabled him to walk he has blood blisters on back of leg, and hard lumps showing up n his groan area, the hospitals keep saying theres nothing on the x-rays and its just either a pulled muscle or the syatica, but i dont think so, i mean can these things last this long and get worse instead of better or could it be something else, please i need an answer hes only 28 yrs old and shouldnt be feeling like this, he did not injur himself on job or @ home n past yr

Pauline :

If your husband has pain that starts in the back and radiated down the leg, which has not improved in 6 months then he needs an MRI to ensure that he does not have nerve compression in the lumbar spine.

Pauline :

Ideally he needs to be under the care of an orthopedic or neurosurgeon to properly assess and examine him. Has he been seen at a clinic?

JACUSTOMER-jo9bbkd9- :

no, i have made an oppointment at a clinic that will put us on a payment plan cause we have no insurance, but what about the bloodblisters and the lumps n his groan is that possible conented or no

Pauline :

Blood blisters are usually a response to trauma...so it would only be linked if he had been very immobile over the last few months. Lumps in groin may be unrelated as this usually indicates an infective or inflammatory process. He would need examination, blood tests and possibly sample taken from the enlarged nodes to be certain.

thank you you've givin me more help than anyone else has n past few months
