Back Pain with Leg Symptoms

Back Pain with Leg Symptoms - Symptoms

What can you not do?

Back pain can be associated with pain in the lower back, buttocks, and sometimes can also include the legs and feet. When the pain is acute, it is best to avoid activities that worsen the back pain and leg symptoms. This may include heavy lifting, running or jarring sports activities as well as prolonged sitting or standing.

In rare cases, back pain can signal a serious medical problem. Seek immediate care if your back pain is associated with new bowel or bladder symptoms (i.e. difficulty going or inability to control urine or bowel movements), or following a fall or trauma. Contact your doctor if you have back pain that worsens at night, is associated with leg pain, weakness, numbness, unexplained weight loss, fever or abdominal pain.
