My Left Hip Is Killing Me, And By The End Of The Day I Can Feel Sharp Pains Down My Leg And Into My Shins And Knees. What Does This Mean?

Answer

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!
