For the past hour Ive been getting sudden bouts of sharp pain which is almost making me cry. Im doing nothing to cause it, it just suddenly hits the full strength of this pain... it stays for up to a minute or so (with me going ouch the whole time as it hurts so much).. and then suddenly goes away. The worst of the pain is running down my leg from the top of the leg to the the bottom of the knee, the pain is focused in the front side of the leg.. my leg thou doesnt seem to be cramping or spasming, just an intense sudden pain. With this pain when it hits, there is something going on in my lower back (its in a higher area then the back dimple is) which is experiencing pain too but nothing like the degree of pain Im feeling in my leg which I only can assume is some kind of radiating pain coming from somewhere else? The more minor pain there (it hurts but not enough for me to be verbally expressing the whole time like to leg pain is doing) is coming from somewhere in my abdomen (Im feeling it in the front too.. it radiates out in the whole region, like as if its coming from somewhere deep within me.. eg an ovary?? Any advice on what this could be.. can sciatic run down the front of the leg or does that only affect the buttocks and the back of the legs? (my buttocks arent being affected). I dont know to what to do.. wait and see if this completely goes away today? (but then its friday tomorrow and I may not be able to get an appointment anywhere then and may then have to wait with this bad pain on and off till Monday). To ring my physio and book an appointment with her for tomorrow when I dont even know if its back related or not (ive see her at times for my back). Ive got other important things thou booked in for tomorrow when my boyfriend comes to help me including take me places at times, including a cat which is sick herself ..cat has possible hernia with vomiting, diarhear which she is getting about the house and also what is looking like a ringworm so needing to get to a vet.) or to seek help from a medical doctor who wont be able to help if the issue is coming rom my back? (the doctor would have to be a local one which Ive never been to before as I havent been to a doctor here yet). I already cant fit in all the important stuff which needs doing tomorrow (things which cant really be done next week) in the time my boyfriend is here to help (and in the time it takes before I start to crash) if I need to go and see someone tomorrow . Anyway know what is "probably" causing me THIS KIND of pain and if its likely to be gone by tomorow?
