Microdiskectomy: Give it some time; sometimes simply moving the roots around can upset the lumbar plexus and give you intermittent (even quite severe) pain, although it resolves within a week or two. Getting to the disk requires mobilization of the roots and inflammatory changes from that- or the disk herniation- itself can give this pain.

Experiencing pain and tingling in left leg/foot. MRI shows herniated disc L4 L5 with L5 nerve impingement but EMG was normal. Get a 2nd EMG?
Physical therapy: In a case where there are symptoms of nerve impingement, and some tests show it (MRI) and others don't (EMG), this may reflect the positional and postural nature of the way our spinal cord and nerve roots move in our body.

I have throbbing pain in left leg to the top of foot. Could this be sciatic nerve problem? I am 78 years of age.

Have a l5 s1 disc herniation recently while running and driving i experience excruciating pain in left leg and anterior half of foot like it goes numb?
Comments: Do feel that many of these disc herniations can desiccate and shrink over period of 9-10 months, but clearly, if things get worse, and disc herniates further, could get to a surgical intervention.
