It is a shooting pain
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
lifting my legs in a sitting position is very painful.
Neurologist: drphophalia, Other replied 7 months ago

Your symptoms can be due to:

1) Iliopsoas tendinitis

2) Groin injury

3) Pinched nerves in back

4) Hip tendonitis and bursitis

5) Osteitis pubis

6) Hip osteoarthritis.

The other possibility for your symptoms can be psoas syndrome.

Your need x-rays and MRI of the back, hip and pelvis for the initial evaluation.

The mainstay of the treatment are;

a) Physical therapy

b) Deep electrotherapy

c) Acupuncture

d) Warm compresses or ice compresses whatever suits you.

e) Local analgesic cream or spray

f) Motrin / Advil / Aleve.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

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

What would cause the sudden onset. And it has decreased in intensity one day and worse the next. I have tried ibuprofen without success and heat. As long as I am not mobile it doesn't hurt just ache. But very difficult to ambulate with the weakness and shooting pain.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Sitting to standing is the most painful
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Should I just refer directly to a neurologist
Neurologist: drphophalia, Other replied 7 months ago

You may consult an orthopedic specialist and a neurologist.

A sudden onset pain need an MRI of the spine with investigations like nerve conduction velocity study and electromyography.

All these causes we had discussed above can have acute onset.
