Sharp pain down lower left abdomen shooting down left leg. Can't sit. Relieved when standing only or lying flat on back. I'm a truckdriver and have been suffering from this for nearly 3 months now. I have been to the ER. Sonogram ruled out blood clot. No evidence of hernia.
It begins in the lower left abdomen, goes down the inner thigh to the back of the knee, to the calf and sometimes to the foot. The most severe pain is in the inner thigh and the knee circumference. Told regular doctor and ER doctor.
Thank you so much. I will tell my regular doctor. You think sciatica with the pain generating from the front and extending predominantly down the inner thigh and to the inner knee then goes to the back. Interesting to me. Anything else I can offer my regular doctor?
