What else can cause sciatica and tingling in both legs, numbness in both feet, when MRI says broad based disc bulge at l4, L5 and spine dr says looks normal and the bulge isnt causing my symptoms! help?

Leg tingling: Other options: poor circulation, peripheral neuropathy (diabetes or other causes), or compression outside the spinal canal. Based on your age, i would make sure that the spine doc looked personally at the films. I see too many patients with missed diagnoses because the report-only was reviewed. If in question, sometimes ct myelogram will show pathology better. Emg/nerve conductions also may help. ...Read more

I have a pinched siatica nerve. Does that cause numbness in the whole leg? I get numb in the leg and foot when i run. Also sometimes when i sleep.

It's possible: Most likely condition would be a pinched nerve. The nerves that supply the feet stem from nerve branches traveling from the leg. The "pinch" could be from the back at its root, but it an also be locally due to musculature. Another thing to be checked is circulation because if blood flow is hampered to a an area, it can cause pain and reduce function in the nerves. Get checked properly. ...Read more

Large L5S1 disc extrusion compressing L5 nerve & s1s2 nerve roots.sciatica&numbness in foot. can I swim or will it aggravate problem.

TimeOfStrifeSeeKnife: Swimming is a good idea but just go easy at first and see how you do. You'll know if you overdid it if you get too sore within 48 hours (at your tender age). Might be a good idea to get an instructor or therapist to help you at the beginning, if possible--even a friend. And be sure to exercise the arms and chest. Breast stroke with a gentle kick. But it sounds like you'll need more than swimming. ...Read more
