These soft parts allow for movement controlled by the spinal muscles; the muscles can also keep it stiff when need be. The lumbar spine also contains and protects nerves to ...Read more

What could cause a burning pain in my thighs, and lower back and abdominal area, when i bend over too long?

Nerve pain?: Burning is a very common term used by patients with nerve-mediated pain. The cause may be from an irritated nerve root/spinal nerve in te back, or even perhaps a peripheral nerve. Given the symptoms are bilateral, likely from back. Would get formal evaluation by physician who specializes in pain or neurology to start the work up process. ...Read more

Sharp, burning pain left flank side near rib cage, can't take deep breaths, also burns towards my lower back...! any idea's?

Sharp, burning pain left flank side near rib cage, can't take deep breaths, also burns towards my lower back...! any idea's?

Neurocostal : Sharp ; burning pain seems neuropathic and radiation pattern around flank of lower chest suggests neural impingement at costal vertebral junction. Inspiration ; costal lift would be expected to intensify this pain. Perhaps a rib-vertebra subluxation is at play. Absence of cough, fever, ; shortness of breath discount pneumothorax ; infection. Pleurisy certainly a concern. Doctor's exam a must. ...Read more

8 days ago I had a lumbar puncture and during the procedure I had a hot burning pain in the lateral thigh that radiated downward. Still on going?

Lumbar puncture pain: A pain (usually sharp) that radiates down the legs is suggestive of a nerve pain. I suggest you go back and discuss this issue with the health care provider who performed the lumbar puncture to make sure that these symptoms are not related to the procedure and that they need to be addressed. ...Read more

I have lumbar stenosis. When I sit I get a burning sensation in thighs and sometimes my knees that goes away when I stand could that be the stenosis?

I have lumbar stenosis. When I sit I get a burning sensation in thighs and sometimes my knees that goes away when I stand  could that be the stenosis?

YES: Characteristically, lumbar stenosis can be very position dependent, and flexion may make the symptoms transiently worsen, and extension may relieve. Since you have a structural condition, it is unlikely to easily respond to conservative treatments, and you may require more invasive approaches. Talk to an experienced back surgeon who could provide further advice. ...Read more

Lumbar sympathetic block provided no relief for burning pain, what other interventional treatments are available?

Dual non-traditional: Burning=virtually always neurologic origin.Contrary to typical approach like blocks of spinal nerves, new & 150 yr old evidence shows most such pain is due to peripheral nerves, not central.Osteopathic history & exam may give info about structural causes (ex. pinching of nerves) & manipulation may correct.Additionally, neuroprolotherapy (relatively new procedure)-very effective for this pain type. ...Read more

I had lumbar decompression surgery on l 2-4 one month ago. The burning pain that is in my left groin and penis has not subsided but has in creased. ?

A different problem: If you had an L2-L4 decompression solely because of the symptoms you describe, somebody goofed. Your symptoms are referable to the T12 and L1 spinal segments. If your discs are OK there, then your problem is somewhere else: inside the pelvis or the groin itself. If you bypassed a neurologist, i.e. went straight from your PCP to a surgeon & thence to surgery, you need to see one now. ...Read more
