I am a 48 y/o male with lower back pain. I have now exp. rt. leg pain both to the front and back of the leg. It is a deep burning pain. I am also exp. urinary retention.


  • Boston? :) Have you gone to a Neurologist or Orthopedic specialist yet, or any diagnostic testing completed? Sorry to hear you are hurting. Pain is a bummer for sure!!! You might have nerve issues, but you won't know for sure until you get an exam and testing done by a spine specialist.

    Welcome to Spine Health!!! You can use the search box at the top of the web page - it might help a bit. Welcome aboard!!!

    The Urinary retention ...I would get with my GP asap as there might be something benign going on or nerve related...you don't want to push that off. Just my thoughts there, as I am not a medical type person.

    PCTF C4 - T2, Laminectomies C5, C6 & C7. Severe Palsy left arm/hand.
  • Welcome to Spine-Health.

    I would start with your GP for both issues if you have not yet seen a spine specialist. Your GP can start the process of x-rays and test to determine what is a problem and refer you to someone else if need be.

    But don't let it go - get to your doctor. Urinary issues are nothing to ignore and I know how men are (sorry, no disrespect intended) - doctors are the last thing you want to deal with but getting this nipped in the bud can be important.

    Take care and please keep us posted.
