Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
MRI scan could show a herniated disk causing a pinched nerve in your back causing your pain in your legs and thighs.
ice packs can help decrease swelling in your back
ibuprofen and steroid pills can sometimes help decrease swelling and help the disk go back into place
physical therapy could eventually help the disk go back into place.
make sure you take ibuprofen with food in your stomach and plenty of fluids
let me know if you have questions.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
