I've been 3 months now with pain, burning, tingling and total numbness in my left thigh. Very annoying! The first MRI did not show anything really bad (so the NC said). Then I did an EMG, results were normal. Then I had a 2nd MRI a few days ago, I haven't seen the doctor yet, but I got the results. This one shows severe left foraminal stenosis at L2, caused by a "sequestered disc fragment". I guess its a fragment of the disc that moved from the disc body. Has anybody had that? Does it require surgery? At least now I know where my symptoms come from. I'll see the doctor this monday. In the meantime I am wondering if someone had a similar thing and can share his/her story.
Thank you so much!
