The pain is only on the right leg. The reason I mentioned the left is because it is strange that the problem is in the left and the pain is in the right.
I think the problem is I keep changing where the pain is coming from and confusing the doctors, but the past few days I have noticed AGAIN that it does come from my right hip (IT bend) especially when I sit down and there is pressure on the thigh muscles. The pain then shoots down to my ankle and toes and it feels like my toes are cramping.
Sometimes I wonder if I hurt my hamstrings and calf during lunges (while carrying weights) last year and there is scar tissue. If there is scar tissue what tests can depict that? Will the neurologist just do an MRI of my back and if he doesn't see anything, tell me he can't help me? What other tests can they do to see where the pain is coming from?
The pain also seems to go down my ankle from the knee, just below the knee cap. I can actually touch that area and feel the nerve pain. Hope you can help because I have had it since May 2009 and since Oct 2010 it has gotten worse.
