Customer Question

four days ago I developed a pain under my left rib (back 7 front), it doesn't hurt on the outside but does on the inside, like a sharp pain, it is in my left leg and buttock as well, it hurts more when standing more than a couple of minutes, pain still there when taken dihydrocodiene tablets, feel sick but not been sick, having red hot then freezing cold flushes, eye sight goes blurred for no apparent reason, I do not feel ill and therefore not gone to doctors, any idea without going to doctors

This sounds like it is coming from the spine

like a disc issue

is this possible?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have a bulging disc to small to operate on, but this happened over 10 years ago, the pain I have now has only recently started and I have never had pain under my left rib before, (everything always happens on left side) the pain radiates from under rib right down leg, thigh has pain (back & front), backside has pain, other bits get pain, I don't have a fever and feel fine otherwise, just find it difficult to stand for more than a minute, cant lie on side, blurring in eyes come on quickly, last a minute or two then goes

it is probably another disc.

one causes another
