Bilateral Leg Pain
Sep 12, 2011
Hi Everyone,

I am new. I am so distressed with both legs in pain, burning feet, stabbings, nerve pain which I have had for over 6 wks now. On Sunday I got a shooting pain at the back of my left leg like an electric shock and I am terrifried that these syptoms will get worse - wil they get worse with intensity?

I have had MRI and I have a L4/L5 bulging disc - I had a very mild back twist injury in April with no nerve compression however my neurosurgeon who wants me to have a nerve block so see if it is the L4 or L5 nerve that is being irritated thats why he feels my legs could be in pain. He said no surgery needed.

If I have no nerve compession why am I then getting this leg pain?

My life is so restricted now and I am terrified of surgery as this does not work on many people.

Has anybody not have surgery and just live with the intense pain because with surgery I heard you get more pain and it is chronic.

I cant believe this is happening to me I am so in terror with the next 'attack' and these shooting pains, stabs, burns come unexpectedly and they torment you not knowing when the next one will be coming.

Please help as I am not coping!
