What cause a burning sensation in lower leg right below the knee . The burning sensation  comes and goes.  It's not swellon or warm to touch.

Hard to say: Answer depends on lots of information that we don't have. How long have you had it? When does it occur? Do you have any other medical problems?

Burning sensation and pain in lower right leg, numbing sensation in foot, pinching sensation in hip ?  No back pain.

Depends: I would like to know where the pain starts. If it originates at the buttock it is possible that the problem could be coming from the back despite not having back pain. My advice would be to get an EMG to rule out a radiculopathy, consider imaging of L-spine and Right Hip, and based on these results decide further tx. Buttock pain could be coming from back, hip or SI joint. Further w/u needed. ...Read more
