Severe leg pain, numbness and tingling

AnonymousUserAAnonymousUser Posts: 49,578
:''( Have had severe leg pain for the past 6 weeks. Starts at my buttocks and shoots down my leg to my ankle. Have been getting adjustments but NO relief. Get MRI results tomorrow. Ice and aleve = no sleep. Pain is severe in hamstring, calve and ankle areas with numbness. Help? :/


  • The MRI will probably give some answers; sounds like sciatica.
    Good luck with that.
  • i'm in the same boat as you, but no MRI as of yet. x-rays show nothing odd, tho.

    can't sleep, ice and ibuprfron do nothing. can't step the 'wrong' way as it sends violent pain down my leg..

    this is hell.

  • L5-S1 disc protrusion, L4-5 disc tear, disc bulging L2-3, L3-4 and superimposed L5-S1. Right foraminal stenosis results. No spinal stenosis or fracture. Straightened lumbar lordosis suggests muscle spasm or sprain. Next step: Neurologist. What does all of this mean?
