Hi,

I have had back issues for quite a while. I am 38 YO Female . In 1996 I broke my sacrum in a car accident. It was a fracture down the middle. Doc just told me not much we can do. I had crutches for a bit. It healed in a few months. Every since them I had had pain in that area and butt. It sort of feels like a deep bruise and sore to touch. I developed lipomas shortly after on both sides of lower back. At least that what GP told me she thinks they are.

Over the years I would periodically get pain in my legs and a a few times they would feel weak like they could give out. I started having feet and leg tingling 2 yrs ago. I sometimes get fasculations in my legs as well. The tingling will start up and last for a few months. It would vary in intensity and would do it for 30 min stop then do it again later in the day. No rhyme or reason. Then it would disappear for a few months . I had an episode of severe burning in my upper thighs early this year and it lasted about 1 week. I thought shingles and went to urgent care but not shingles and he said sciatica is usually on one side so doc had no clue. SO I have no idea what that was.

Now the tingling has started again but worse than the other times. I decided well I need to get this figured out and booked an appt with back specialist at the neurolgy clinic. He is doing MRI and EMG for my legs in a few weeks.

I had an MRI a few years ago when I lived in another state and that PA said I have a slight bulging disc at L4 and L5 and nothing really to do except physical therapy which really did not do anything. He said it really did not look bad and everyone has this.

Today I had my husband massage my left hip & butt area for like an hour . It hurts but feels good when massaged. Hard to explain. Its like it takes the pressure feeling off when its massaged. About 1 hour after he finished I got up and noticed my butt is now burning very bad on that side . The pain is just like it was when I had it on the tops of my thighs this year. Its right under the buttock going around my leg to my groin. It feels pretty miserable. I cannot sit without pain . I try to put all my pressure on the other side.

What in the world could this be. I know you are not doctors but figured this has happened to some of you here.

I am thinking sciatica or something wrong with the disc or MS etc? Just scared.

Are you seeing a neuro? The burning in the thigh and tingling could be signs of MS. I would ask about it.
