Customer Question
Pain on left side...

Pain on left side then goes down towards the pelvic bone. The pain makes back hurt and sometimes makes legs feel weak

Doctor's Assistant: Have you had any recent injuries? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

No recent injuries, hurts when walking at time. Pain will come and go when walking. Nothing makes it better or worse. Pain just there, feels like a burning sensation

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Hurt back in 2006-2007, have an ulcer since 2005

Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 6 months ago

Your symptoms can be due to;

1) Pinched nerves in back.

2) A kidney stone passing from kidney to bladder.

Pinched nerves in the back can be due to;

1) Herniated/degenerated disc in back

2) Lumbar spondylosis; bone spurs in the back vertebrae pressing on the nerves.

Following investigations would be required;

1) X-ray of the lower back

2) MRI of the spine

3) Nerve conduction velocity (NCV) study

4) Electromyography (EMG)

A kidney stone will require;

a) An ultrasound

b) X-ray abdomen

c) CT scan.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

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