Hi Shauna:
Yes I do feel pain in the hip. Your sciatic nerve runs through there.
Also , I just learned this at PT. He says my periformis muscle is soooo tight. That is the muscle that runs right on top of the sciatic nerve. If that muscle is tight it can put pressure on the sciatic nerve and cause pain. He said a lot of times , when we walk with a gait.... (don't know if you do or not) I do with the drop foot, that you aggravate the periformis.

But in my opinion,,,, and i'm no dr........ but if you have the inside of your disk bulging out and it's touching a nerve. You are going to have problems until that is addressed.
I definately want to know what the dr says when you go back. When are you supposed to go back? I mean they didn't diagnose you and not tell you what their intentions were did they?

You need to be seen about. I would hate to see anybody deal with permanent nerve damage if it can be prevented. I am stuck with it, and it's a hard cookie to swallow to know I'll have this forever.

Let me know how things go ! Lisa :)
