Neuropathy: Hi, the nerves that supply function to the lower extremities travel from the lower spine down the legs. It is possible for a disk in between vertebrae to become injured and press on a nerve as it exits the spine. The sensation of nerve pain is often described as pins and needles or burning pain . I suggest you see your doctor soon for evaluation and treatment. Good luck!
