I have searched through the internet daily hoping to find answers on this one. I go back to my dr next week for my monthly x-ray. I'm 4 months out on an L2 burst/compression fracture due to a car wreck. I have complained of severe pain in my right hip since the accident but these pains down into my foot are rarely new. I thought maybe it was sciatica since I do still have swelling in the bone and the fracture hasn't healed, but everything I have loked at about sciatica shows a different path (not into the little toe). Pain is worse when walking but aches constantly. Anyone else have these pains? If so, is it a nerve issue or a muscle issue?
