Pain and pulling from stomach to leg

Good morning everyone. I have not seen a Doctor about my problem as I don't have a very good relationship with him and would rather have my toe nails pulled. I'm new to the group and haven't read my issue on the group so here it is and if anyone else has had my problem please let me know what it could be.

I wake up at all hour of the night with pain in my lower left side and it pulls down to about the middle of my upper left leg. I try to massage it out and change my position but it just keeps pulling. This has only happened one time while I was in an upright standing position. All the other times has been either sitting or sleeping. Anyone?

Please look at the Dellon Institute in Baltimore under the pain heading. See chapters one, four and twelve. Might help.

I’m in the same predicament. Seven years I’ve had damaged nerves and they don’t do anything like the Dellon institute do over here in the U.K. good luck.

Deb, have you tried any physiotherapy yet? It might help. What about a Swedish body massage by a Registered Massage Therapist?

Do you have anxiety? Pasco sells passionflower tablets as ‘ Pascoflaire’. It is a natural means of calming down your entire system. It really helps with sleep to.

Have you had prior surgeries? Was teal hardware used in any of these procedures? Metal can migrate and cause pain.

Keep us posted.

No I haven't tried anything yet. I'm afraid of even doing setups at this point. Anytime I do anything that over exerts the pelvic or upper front leg muscle I get the pulling feeling then the pain. I have had three surgeries. Hysterectomy in my 20's ectopic pregnancy before that and gallbladder removed. I know I have a lot of scar tissue as I have lumps all around the incision. Oh and I had thyroid cancer so the right side of thyroid removed. Not bad for a 58 year old lol. I do have carpal tunnel but never had the surgery. I have arthritis in many locations. Mostly from working in the automotive industry. I have sciatica pain on my right side but this problem I'm having now is on the left. Only time that is problematic is usually in cold weather the lower back gets inflamed. I'm Canadian :) eh. Prior accident at 17. I have nutcracker esophagus that causes pain during a flare up. Painful as well but nitro patch helps that pain. That in a nutshell are all my health issues.

Thought you might want to know that I am on the road to recovery. I'm so grateful to all who answered my question. Seems it started because of my sciatic nerve messing up my Psoas muscle which has been giving me spasms. My friend is treating me at home therefore I don't have any out of pocket expense. Even better I didn't need to go see my GP who would have just treated with medication. BONUS.

Remedial sports massage to release the Psoas muscle. I have it treated regularly. Find a good one though with a good reputation.

You were dead on with this muscle. Thank you so much. Just after the massage and two days of stretching the spasms have subsided. Made sense to my friend who is a Physiotherapist, who didn't put the two together. The two meaning my sciatic pain on the right side and spasms on the left could have been Psoas Syndrome. I'm so glad I found this site. Thank you for reading my question I owe you big time. xx
