4 weeks postop alif, was doing great, no leg or back pain, just recovery pain. Now burning sensation & pain on top of feet, very painful & bad at night.

Nerve irritation: This sounds like an irritation of the L5 nerve root or distal peroneal nerve. Check back with your surgeon. Re-imaging with MRI or myelogram, or electrophysiological workup (EMG) may be helpful to pinpoint the problem. They may start you on Neurontin or Lyrica (pregabalin) medication which reduces nerve pain. Short course of steroids (cortisone) may help but will slow down your fusion. ...Read more

My GP has prescribed Efexor 37.5mg tablets for my anxiety I have only had one tablet and I have had a burning sensation in my legs and feet?

Thoughts: Anxiety is best treated by CBT therapy w/ or w/out medication. Decide together in Tx. Most GPs do the best they can, but they are not specialists. Best advice would be to let the GP know your reaction and stop the Rx at only one dose. More doses might begin to need tapering. You could just stop and seek a psychotherapist. Best! ...Read more

Diffuse annular disc bulge 1 to 2 mm at L4 L5. causing burning sensation in right leg and foot since 4 months. How is the prognosis. Is it nerve damag?

It depends...: On the cause. There are many causes of sciatica. See a doctor who specializes in neuromuscular disorders to determine the cause of your sciatica and to recommend an appropriate treatment plan. Most normal adults have disc bulges, and I agree with Dr. Krauser that your disc bulge at L4-L5 is not likely the source of your symptoms. Other causes include piriformis syndrome & sacroiliac joint issues. ...Read more

Burning sensation in feet& legs. Vein Dr. Says it's not veins. But I should see a Neurologist? Could nerves be causing all this burning?

Burning and nerves: Yes, the sensation of burning is probably caused by problems with the nerves more than any other source, besides changes in the skin, which can be seen. If the area that feels like burning is the same on both sides, and the skin looks okay, it makes sense to consider if it is the nerves, or at least, something that is bothering the nerves. ...Read more
