Hello David,

Was there any injury, accident, fall, unaccustomed activity?

Are you hip movements or back movements painful when you stand?
Do you smoke?
Any urinary burning, numbness, weakness, abnormal sensation in right lower limb / hip?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Pain all night and when i get upfor 5 to 10 min then feel fine all day

These symptoms are suggestive of spinal canal stenosis (a back issue). MRI of the back should be able to diagnose the problem, which may show pinched nerves in the back; causing these symptoms. Physical therapy, acupuncture and deep electrotherapy are likely to relieve the symptoms. The specialists to consult would be;

1) MD in physical medicine and rehabilitation
2) Orthopedic
3) Chiropractor

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
