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 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

Your physician can tell by your history and physical which nerve(s) are likely to be involved. Based on that he may recommend an MRI or physical therapy or medications. ...Read more
