So folks , hello. I wanted to ask you all if any of you have experienced what I have. So I went and had my 2nd MRI w con. since my surgery discectomy on Aug 11, 2008. At first it was LEFT leg pain. I have neurontin 2700mg per day that helps a great deal keeping that pain under control. 2 weeks ago I started to get this burning/cold/numb feeling in my upper outside of my RIGHT leg. Over the last 3 days the area has gotten larger. It has gone from only bothering me only when I lay on my back to being almost completely numb all of the time. I am very worried. I am still waiting on my doc to get back to me. I dont understand why the neurontin helps with my left leg pain and not my new right leg pain and numbness. I worry how much of my leg will continue to get numb(will this keep spreading) :??


  • Of course I have no idea why, but wanted to throw this out-it may not be caused from a spine issue at all. If you are a male-it could be due to an inguinal hernia. My husband complained of similiar pains, especially if he laid down on his side with his legs kind of like in an "h" shape. That seemed to compress the inguinal area even more. It is sometimes called a sports hernia.

    I'm sorry for this new issue and hope you get some answers and relief soon.
  • wow. thanks for that info. But that is not the issue by far. I have a ruptured disc at l4l5. I do appreciate your kind thoughts though. Thanks
