Can a severely narrowed bilateral neural foramina cause skin burning sensation in feet & legs? MRI says there is this narrowing.

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Possible

Depends on level of narrowing - would have to involve multiple levels to cause this.
Important thing is to rule out other medical conditions that can be potentially more serious like untreated diabetes, vascular disease, low vitamin levels, kidney/liver disease, medication side effects etc. Doctor can rule these out and then if left with diagnosis of narrow foramina that may need neurosurgery eval
