Hi doctor,

I have been suffering from lower back pain, which radiates to my buttock and thigh muscles. The pain is not constant. It comes and goes. What shall I do?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  1. Muscular strain.
  2. Lumbar spondylosis.
  3. SI (sacroiliac) joint in-formation.
  4. Disc prolapse.
  5. Lumbopelvic dysfunctionality.
  6. Vitamin D deficiency.
  • What you need to do is to see an orthopedic surgeon, and get yourself examined. I suggest you get the following tests done:
  1. X-ray pelvis and lumbar spine.
  2. Vitamin D levels.
  • Depending on the first set, treatment will be physiotherapy or further tests.
