Hello. : Hello. Although i can't diagnose your condition, the description sounds like possible sciatica. I would contact your doctor so that he or she can evaluated for this and determine what type of treatment would be best.

Most : Most patients with leg pain/numbness from compression of the sciatic nerve (sciatica) resolve in 3 months. Patients that do not resolve often require surgery. Today disks can be removed minimally invasively through an endoscope the size of a pencil through an incision smaller then your finer nail. I would recommend seeing a spine doctor or spine surgeon. Good luck! please see my health guide on lumbar disk herniations and sciatica.

Possible neuropathy: Depending on the affected nerves, symptoms of diabetic neuropathy can range from a numbness and tingling sensation, possibly a burning sensation, to an uncomfortable painful sensation of the extremities. Neuropathy may affect your digestive system, urinary tract, blood vessels and the heart. For some people, the symptoms are mild; for others, it can be painful and disabling.
