numbness and some weakness in leg

for about 3 weeks i had a dull achy pain in my lower back then one night about 10 days ago bad burning pain in front of leg could not sleep. Next day pain was pretty much gone but i had some numbness inside of thigh to knee cap and down the shin to the ankle. Pain is very minimal now but the leg weakness and numbness is still there!! I can walk but strength is not where it should be any advice or help would be appreciated. Looks like i could have a possible herniation from the L3/L4 disc from what i have read online. 



  • Auff16- I think you need to go see a doctor, self diagnosing is not recommended because most of the time google is wrong. You need to get diagnostic testing to really find out  what is going on.

    hello auff16!
    welcome to spine health
    all new members should take the system tutorial

    if you put all of your symptoms into dr. google you would wind up with everything known to man. not a good idea. "it could be" is not an answer, that is a guess. as challenger suggested, see a specialist and get diagnostic testing done.

    take care and keep us posted on this thread on what you find out.
