Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 7 months ago

Is the pain shooting down her leg?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
no just seems to be getting bigger area. not very bad pain more like sensitive to the touch like a bruise
. there is no color or anything just some pain
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 7 months ago

OK

Most likely she's irritated an nerve--probably her sciatic nerve

That isn't an emergency situation but she should have her doctor check this out since if I were her doctor I would give her a cortisone injection there to get rid of the inflammation and resolve the pain

Please let me know if you need any more information

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.

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.
