Back tightness and hip pain
About 2 1/2 years ago I developed weakness when walking, in my right leg. This occurred overnight; I started taking Vitamin B complex and shin pain has gone. However, when I lie on right side, hip starts hurting sometimes. Upon waking in am, sometimes low back feels as if it is in a vise.
When I sit down, feeling is immediately relieved. My feet are both swelling and sometimes lumps come up on top of my feet, are very painful, then go away. What could cause this and how do I go about treatment?

My initial thoughts were a sciatica; to confirm or deny this, go to the search this site function and type in slump test, and follow the instructions. Let me know what happens.
A tight lower back, pain in the shin, and weakness in the lower leg is usually neurological; a nerve impingement.
But the swollen legs doesn't fit with this.
It's possible you may have two different conditions. If the Slump Test is positive, see a chiropractor.
But for those swollen legs, I'd ask your doctor to examine you.
