Hoping I can get some insight. I have horrible leg pain that starts in lower back, goes around to outside and anterior of thigh to knee, and knee is extremely pain. my pain is worse standing and walking, going up steps, and while turning over in my sleep. Also having horrible spasms in the anterior thigh. My surgeon states that my MRI shows multiple level degenerative disc disease with various degrees of mild central stenosis and mild lateral recess stenosis. Most significant is left side of L3-L4 has extruded small disc fragment . This migrated distal to L3-L4, it is medial to pedicle of L4 causing compression of descending L4 nerve root. One ortho surgeon is saying diagnostic L4 nerve injection with microdiscetomy one surgeon laminectomy. All insights are appreciated. Does my pain correspond to my symptoms?
