Pain from L5/S1 ONLY in foot !



  • Can you tell me what your doctor did.  My nerve test showed a Pinch Nerve at L4.  About 48 hours ago had Fusion Hardware removed. Pain in toes are much better still have numbness on bottom of both feet.  

  • Hi: I've been dealing with a growing pain in my left foot for almost 10 years. It feels like I am wearing a boot filled with molasses and rose branches.

  • I had a 9MM L5S1 which led to a microdiscectomy.  Prior to the surgery the pain was in my back, however got worse in the ball and side of my foot.  Six Months prior to the surgery I had an accident that directly cused these issues.  I had the surgery and the foot is still burning to the point that I can't walk for more then 15 minutes without having to get off my feet.  I have no pain down my legs.  Any ideas as to what this can be?  It has been a month since the surgery, and the foot is still the same as it was prior and I am concerned.  I am young with two acitive kids ages 2&6, and want to participate in sports with them and I can not now.  Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreceated. (FYI) No history of any back or foot problems and this is a new injury in the last 6 months.  Thank you
