I have experienced severe right leg pain. Almost and electrical sensation I have lower l4, L5 deteriotion and i get spinal injection. But this time it has not helped the pain in my right from the hip to my foot when the pain hits the hardest i sweat prof

Back : Back and leg pain can be caused by disks, stenosis, slipping of the spine (spondylolithesis), foraminal stenosis, spine fractures, etc.

Most likely your right leg pain is from herniated l4-5 disk. Patients with disk herniations may benefit from giving time for the pain to settle, physical therapy, steroid injections and surgery. If the disk herniation did not respond to steroid injection then you should see a spine surgeon to discuss surgical options. There has been many advances in spine surgery and i would recommend looking into endoscopic spine surgery. Please see my health guide on lumbar disk herniations and sciatica.

Maximum Ibuprofen dose varies on your weight and medical conditions i recommend discussing this with your doctor.

Good luck! ...Read more
