Hi guys. I looked through some old post but I couldn't find an answer to this question....is it possible to have nerve pain in my right leg due to my herniated C5 through C7? I'm having the same "shooting" pains in the side of my leg that I have in my arms. I'm wondering if I need to call my doctors office or if I am overeacting.....


  • Hi Spinaltap.

    I also have a shooting pain in my leg, although it's my left one. It's a sharp shooting pain that starts in my lower back and shoots down the back of my leg to my knee. It mostly happens when I walk and gets really bad when I pull something with my arms. I had this before my surgery, but it seems tobe worse now. I thought it was sciatica, but I'm glad you posted this because I'd like to know the answer as well.

    Is this pain new for you?

    By the way, I can't believe your surgical consult is so far away considering your symptoms.

  • Yes, it's pretty new. I've been noticing it for about a week or two but I thought it would go away. As far as the surgical consult goes, it seems like everything around here takes about a month or two before you get in...lots of demand for spine specialists in this area????
