Hi 01Chris. I have the same symptoms on my right leg. My problem is not from my back though. The ortho explained it to me that it depends on where the numbness, buring, etc is. Mine is around the knee and mostly in the front of the leg. Which means I have a pinched nerve in my hip. It is called Meralgia Paresthetica. I have had it for the past 6 years and for me it hasn't gotten any better. Ortho said if it is in the back of the leg it is from the back. Hope this helps a little. Angela
Hi Angela,
Now you have me wandering because my dr. said my symptoms are typical of a collapsed disk. My burning, tingling and numbness is ALL over my legs, front, side and back, not just the back of my leg. That is interesting about the pinched nerve in your hip. My hips do hurt alot but I thought that was from my back also. Again, every one is different.

Hey Gail. You might want to look on the net and see if the symptoms you have are from Meralgia Paresthetica. When you look they actually have pictures on some sights to show exactly where you will have the burning, tingling, etc. I was diagonosised 6 years ago and then before my surgery my ortho doctor tried to tell me i had a pinched nerve in my back. Well I got a two level spinal fusion and my leg still hurts. I went back to ortho and he said well maybe it is Meralgia Paresthetica. I don't know your symptoms but standing is really painful for me. That is one of my first symptoms besides the tingling. It is something to look into. Nothing worse than to get a misdiagnoses. Good luck Angela
hey there
I have a herniated disc at L4/5
This causes me back pain and numbness and tingling in legs

I am led to believe the disc is protruding out and making contact with the sciatic nerve (the nerve's that runs down your legs)

This has been confirmed by doctors


I would take it real easy if i were you

I would not stand or sit for long periods of time
i would take ibufrophen
and i would "ice" your lower back

just to make sure IF you have the start of a back problem, you give it time to "calm down"

just my 2 cents

Hi, I have those same symptoms too. I have SPondylolisthesis and sciatica. I don't know what back problems you have but that is a step backwards in any type of recovery. It is really important to let your doctor know about any changes that happen in regards to your back, even if you are not sure if it's related. It's pretty amazing how many things can go wrong with having back problems. For the time being take it easy, do not over do it! Make sure you see your doctor as soon as possible and if you are not seeing an orthopaedic or neurosurgeon I would ask for a referral. Take care as let us know how things go. Good luck, I wish you the best. Kristy.
