Hi everyone, I injured my (already weak) low back due to a heavy lifting incident 8 gays ago. I am accustomed to the horrible pain, but this time I am also getting SERIOUS hip pain, moderate anterior thigh pain, and major numbness/pins and needles further down (knee, medial thigh). Is this a normal part of the Sciatic pain process? I usually self-treat and wait for symptoms to resolve on their own. Does this sound more urgent to anyone? Not looking for medical advice, just experiences/opinions to compare. Thanks!!
