I guess this is yet another post from someone seeking advice. I'm almost 3 weeks post op for L4-L5 micro discectomy. 1week was great, i was feeling residual pain/numbness in my leg. I started with the pain in my left leg almost 6 months ago and took a while as I tried all the methods possible. It was area below the ship and left food that I was limping and quality of life was awful. Well, at 32 I was trying to avoid any surgeries, i thought it would go away as I have dealt with back back due to degeneration since I was 15.
Now after 1 and half I started having burning feeling in both my legs which I didn't have before. Even if I walk for 15 mins I feel like my feet and area under and on the side of the shin are on fire. I had stopped narcos but now I'm back on it and doctor said it's because of nerve pain, but I feel it's even worse than what I was feeling as I never felt this burning/pinching feeling in my legs/calf before. I'm afraid I already re-herniated
All the threads I looked at talked about tingling, numbness, pain but don't see much of burning sensations. So asking for any ideas or thoughts on this? Thanks.
