Disc bulge indenting thecal sac at L5/S1, possible impringment of left S1 root. Could this be cause of burning toes at night? Steroid injection help?

In brief: S-1 root gives leg-

-pain from buttock 2thigh posterior & lateral calf.
If only all Ur toes, most likely not. Sounds more like a neuropathy from a different case, such as diabetic neuropathy . I don't think epi will help. If a neurologist has seen U & U had an EMG, & recommend it I would follow his/her advise .
