I have a herniated L5/S1 disc for more than ten years. There is also sciatica pain on left leg especially if I put weight on that leg. This condition got worse gradually over the years. Now there is a new symtom: the area around my buttocks has a searing, burning, numbing sensation when I sit for more than an hour. If I'm standing, walking, sleeping that feeling goes away. This bothers me more than the occasional sciatica pain in left leg.
Does anyone have this "pain" and is this related to L5/S1 herniated disc, or is this caused by another herniated disc elsewhere?
