    Thank you everyone for your messages... I really do appreciate it!  Here's an updated... The pain has stayed away thank goodness but the numbness continues.  Dr. said that It's just going to take time, he said NO surgery and to just wait it out.  I felt good about that.  So I continue on my journey in hopes that my right leg will eventually feel again! ha! I hope everyone is doing well and feeling better.  It's such a horrible pain to be in I know and all I can say at this point is just keep positive and pray.

    Thanks again everyone!  I'll be back with updates.

    The same thing happened to me and the numbness has not gone away.  It's gotten worse and they think I may need a foraminotomy on L5/S1.  Took a year to figure that out!  There was no hurtiated disc.  It's been a year and a half and I'm afraid it may be too late for the nerve to heal and the numbness to go away.  I would address this ASAP.

    @oddbot, is it possible that your numbness is now covering up the pain? By it's definition "numb" means: deprived of the power of sensation, which is confusing that you're getting both numbness and pain at the same sight. I know it sounds odd, but in any case, pain is always better than numb. I wouldn't wait too long to see someone. 

    Did you keep your xray and mri images cd? What did they show you about your pelvic and spinal alignment?
