Ok, heres the deal, i have already seen many pt's, had an mri and blah blah blah. What it comes down to is i have degenerative discs in the very bottom two discs of my spine. I have the mri photos if more experienced ppl would like to look at them. Although i have some concerns with this problem, for the majority this is being treated and has been fine for the past few months which is very good for me.
This past monday after leg workout with no loading of the spine (disc isssue) later that day my hip started killing me, like just a random onset of pain. It wouldnt hurt to stretch, but the pain got slightly more intense and tight after stretching. I rolled it with a baseball with little avial. Im worried this is connected to the back problem which would be a real buzz kill. The pain is not in the hip flexor, but the very side of the hip, the area one would target doing a side bend. It is only on the left side and radiates slightly to the front and back.
Tuesday while trying to stretch out my glutes and hip using the siting on a bench, one leg crossed over then push the knee down and lean over to stretch the glute, my left knee (the one i was applying pressure to) made quite a few cracks a pops. Now i have pain only to the touch, doesnt hurt walking around or anything. The pain is on the outside of the calf, and runs just below the knee down to the nd of the muscle belly really.
Any help with any of these problems would be much appreciated. Ask any questions that would help you diagnose and i will try my best to answer,
Thanks in advance
