I had kind of the same thing, except my herniation was L5-S1. I had burning, numbness, shooting pain in my left leg. I did PT, epidural injections, etc. Everything you can think of I think I did. My pain got worse and I forgot how to walk so I had surgery (Laminect/Disect.). That surgery failed and I had pain in both legs. The reason I had it in both legs was because it was a central herniation which means it was going straight out the back of my disc which was hitting my nerve. Some days it would be worse on one leg and other days it'd be the other. I ended up having a repeat surgery with a different doctor and so far so good in my lower back. I do have a problem in my mid-back but that's another story. I hope you find relief some how and please explore your options before surgery.
