burning in groin and buttock
Slump test for sciatica
Burning in groin and buttock sounds like nerve pain; but is it?
I have been having severe pain for more than two years across my lower back and into my left hip and buttocks.
I wake up every morning with extreme burning and numbness in the buttocks and upper hamstring. I have had a lumbar mri as well as xrays of lumbar and sacrum.
I have seen so many doctors without a diagnosis. Just recently the pain has gone into my left groin. A lot of my pain is in the joint in the buttocks and hip. At times the burning gets really bad in the buttocks around the tailbone area. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
These two little tests will rule out sciatica; let's just start with them, and then take it to the next step. Do them after no analgesic or anti inflammatory medication for 24 hours.
1. Bend slowly forwards, and tell me exactly what you feel. Now repeat by going backwards and to the side. Do it gently as it can worsen the condition.
2. Sitting in a normal kitchen chair, ask the missus to raise your foot so the leg is parallel to the ground, and then slowly flex your head; not your whole body.
Do it first with the normal leg and then with the naughty limb. Tell me exactly what you feel.
3. Perhaps one more since you have groin pain; lie on your back and pull your knee to your chest, then to the opposite shoulder, and then make a circle using your knee as a lever.
Let me know what you feel. Is the pain in both buttocks?
