Really cold in the thighs

AnonymousUserAAnonymousUser Posts: 49,321
Hi Guys,
I posted My MRI scan report 06/30/2008 and many thanks for replying,
I had a fall and my sciatica has got worse down the right leg, so I'm now limping. When walking and taking a right step my leg twitches a few times. I'm having problems standing upright,can't do to much walking and my movements are really restricted. Have just seen the neurosurgen and he wants another MRI scan and I'm having a second steriod injection next week.
The one thing that I'm worrying about is the pain I have in my thighs. When sitting at home or in a car my legs get so cold and thigh muscles ache. As I'm not doing much walking when I go to bed my legs are not thobbing as before....is this normal for back problems.? Can Back problems cause vascular issue.? Any imput would be most welcome.


  • I went from doctor to doctor with my burning red feet. Even saw a vascular specialist. Everything came out normal until I finally saw my neurologist.

    I'm a newcomer and haven't seen your MRI report. So, I don't know what conditions you have. However, there is some documentation about vascular type symptoms with back problems.

    You may want to click on the "conditions" tab. And then click "stenosis".

    It took a lot of running around to get my problem somewhat pinpointed. We still don't know what is causing it, but in my case it is either from radiulopathy or a small fiber neuropathy.

    However, discuss this with your doctor because I wouldn't be surprised if other back conditions could cause similar types of symptoms.
