In brief: Radicular pain

Ofter, there are changes to the bones of our bodies.
At the level of the spine, changes may cause nerve compression. If the involved nerve is the sciatic nerve, there may be pain and dysesthesia in (any or all) thigh, knee, lower leg, and foot. You may be having radicular pain, originating from nerves being compressed in your lumbo-sacral spine. See your family doctor for a thorough work-up.
