extreme heat inner thighs

hello I have a protruding disc left side l5s1 that has been bothering me for 18 months now, not bad enough for surgery , I get stomache nerve pain and thigh pain to the knee when I stand, however the real problem is the last year or so I get extreme heat coming from my inner thighs when I stand, walk, sit or lay down, when I say heat I mean heat(temperature not burning)it actually gets hot and causes a host of side effect because of where it is, the neurologists say there is no correlation between heat and my injury, the only time I am fine is when I elevate my leg/ knee above my waist, it instantly goes away until I stand again, it is so incredibly frustrating, I have had all my blood work done with no real indications of what is happening, just thought I would post here and see if anyone out there is having a similar issue, or can guide me down the path to a possible answer!
