This answer was rated:

Hi There, since I spoke to you i have had spreading pain to my lower back particularly on the right side when I'm performing any activity. This follows down my left leg and causes a numbing sensation in both legs. Does this fit with your previous answer? I forgot to say I take 30mg cetirizine. Many Thanks

Thank you for your question.

How severe is the pain at the moment?

Have you tried using anything for it?

Please let me know.

It's very severe when I perform tasks like general housework, then it dulls and goes numb. When i rest it's not painful except the line down the outer side of my left leg. Only taking ibuprofen.

Thank you for your response.

Yes it is still MOST LIKELY related to lower back problems or bulging discs in the lower back that may be causing your pain and this is something that I would like that should be ruled out as a priority.

This session is open for any further questions that you may have.
