HELP - severe leg pain

Has anyone experienced severe pain in leg (left only)?Starts in lower back and traverses the entire upper leg to the knee.Feels as if someone has been hitting it with a baseball bat or pulling on it.Started about a week ago and is getting worse with each day.See my GP on Thursday but do not see my surgeon until the day of op.(20/02).Wondered if it has anything to do with my fibroids/cysts etc?

HELP - severe leg pain

Hi E.J.,
You are correct. I believe it has everything to do with a Cyst. I have the same pain. My pain is very low back and shooting pains down the back of my leg. Sometimes it feels as though someone is pulling on my ligaments. My Doctor told me that whether it's a Uterine problem, or cysts, they can rest on the ligaments that are attached to your back.

Good luck!

A big for you!!!

It's not in your head!!! Isn't it funny that we as women always assume it's in our head.

I firmly believe that the discomfort that turns into pain starts out so gradual, that we feel as though their is nothing wrong with us!

leg pain

Hi, Sorry you're hurting. I have fibroids and this last year have pain in my right leg. I thought maybe it was a nerve. At times it is like someone with a hammer is working on me and the line of pain is from low back down the back of the leg around to the knee cap. I've alway had terrible low back pain around my period. Hope you find an answer soon. I admit that I take a lot of Motrin/Aleve and sometimes it helps this pain. Good luck...let us know. Maralyn

HELP - severe leg pain

I had this with a prolapsed uterus. I thought I needed to see a Chiropractor for a pinched nerve (sciatic) I was in so much pain. Imagine my surprise when after the hyst it disappeared!

Severe Pain

Hi, I go in for TAH/SBO on Thursday, the pain you are describing is exactly like mine. I had some pain at night when I would sleep for the past 4 years, I would have to get up out of bed and sleep in the recliner downstairs all that time we thought it was from a car accident that I had been in (Lucky to be Here), the doctor and I kept thinking it was a nerve problem. Then 2 months ago the pain became very intense in my lower back, left leg, and left ovary, and the pain was now constant my doctor decided to have an MRI done , Low and behold all of this time I have had a cyst on my Ovary that suddenly grew and now needs to be surgically removed I have what is called a Cystadenoma that is benign,the cyst is 17cm and still growing, I will have the hysterectomy also due to having a 95 percent chance of this type of cyst developing on my other ovary. It is very painful, I thought it was in my head also. It is nice to hear that I am not crazy and that there really is a reason I have been feeling so lousy... Good luck in your search of what is wrong... Check everything out.... but don't let it and find out what s going on... Tina in MO

HELP - severe leg pain

Hi Tina, E.J., Sheri, Maralyn,

All of you ladies are awesome! Wohew!!!! Thank God I'm not the only one who feels this way. Who would have ever thought that lower back problems were from our female anatomy?

I'm so glad when they take it out I'll feel like a new woman!

My DH says I walk around the house like an 80 year old woman!

Take care all!
