[QUOTE=dontevergiveup;2919706]MY SYMPTOMS are constant tingling to the outside of both my calves down to my little toe and to my big toe on both feet when sitting or standing to long. It also occurs when I am laying down in bed. He says my symptoms are not consistant with what the MRI Photos are showing him. He never reviewed these finding with me that the Radiologist posted. Symptoms X 1 month now.SUGGESTIONS.[/QUOTE]


The reason you're feeling this down to your middle toe is most likely because either your L4-L5 disc or Prirformis muscle (under your glutes) is pinching your Sciatic nerve (this runs down the back of your thigh...then branches into many nerves, including the peroneal which reaches to your middle toe).


Have you been told that your nerve is being pinched by your L4-L5???

If yes, then your surgery could fix.

If no, then lie on the floor and place a tennis ball under the middle of your buttocks. If it's excruciating, then it could be your Piriformis.

My bet is he's not asking you the right questions, like if your thighs are numb or tingling. You don't have to have back pain...

Good luck!
