    Welcome tfriedman!  Has your doctor investigated this?  Radiating pain can be a nerve (sciatic) problem or something else.  It's best to see a doc so they can order whatever tests you need.  Have you fallen recently?  If so, it could be anything from a fracture to a injured joint/muscle.

     

    I would tell your doc and see what he/she can do to help you.  If you don't have insurance or are underinsured, here's a real good disount plan for those with/without insurance on lab, imaging tests, and presciption drugs.  This card even covers pet medications.

     

    Check out the discount card for under/uninsured.  Click the previous link and scroll to bottom of page for imaging (x-ray, CT, and MRI scans) and also lab/blood tests.  The prices are really good and you don't need a doctor's prescription to have blood tests done.  Read about the imaging test discount.  I'm not sure if this requires an order, from the doctor, or not; but the other lab/blood tests can be completed without a prescription and the discount is phenomenal!!!  The blood tests are approximately 1/3 the retail cost with the FREE card that you print out.

     

    Good luck!

      tfriedman, you don't need a doctors order for imaging tests through the above link!!!  This program is available through the National Osteoporosis Foundation and it looks fantastic.  I haven't used it yet, but will shortly.Smile
