I received an MRI and was diagnosed with a slight herniated disc to the lumbar spine. All of my pain is located on the lower left side of my back and into left my leg. Before I was diagnosed, I had all the symptoms of the HD. However for about 1 week I have had a lot of pain focused in my left knee and going a bit downwards.
It hurts to put pressure on the knee or walk on it..I am nervous I can have something worse or even an unrelated illness. I saw a neurologist who said I didn't seem to have any nerve damage or anything blocking the nerves. So it doesn't look like I had any kind of HD complication such as losing feeling, loss of bowel movements, etc.
I am just very concerned about this knee pain. It is so focused in my knee and not radiating down my leg. Can this be symptoms for a HD or could I have something worse?
Thanks for any help.
