hello... i have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis and doctor believes i have something wrong with one of my discs in my spine but i don't know the exact diagnosis there... i can hardly walk the pain is so sharp in my pelvic bones when i press down on my right leg... is there anything that can be done... it is so depressing... i have other health problems so this overcomes me when i can't walk... is there a surgery or other procedure such as accupuncture, etc. that can help me... thank you...
Stiffness and pain in the lower back pain that runs into the pelvis area and buttocks, muscle weakness and pain in legs, tingling sensations down the leg are all symptoms of lumbar spondylosis or lumbar osteoarthritis.
When the pain is getting worse and unresponsive to drug treatment, and defecation and urinary difficulties may have developed, a surgery is suggested as a treatment option.
thank you for your reply... today the pain has been so sharp in my right leg pelvic bone region that i have almost fallen... have rested most of the day... have had someone tell me to get to a bone specialist asap as maybe it's my hip joint and problem can be fixed with surgery... i am praying for a miracle!
