Still not sure what's going on

Hey All, been having various symptoms for the past month that had be thinking herniated disk to Stenosis to Far Lateral Herniated Disk. I am having significant sciatic pain down my leg that would resolve with walking around, now a month later walking around/standing makes it hurt--sitting hurts too, so I find myself on the floor. The crazy thing is it seems numbness that was just in my little toe has migrated to "sensory fuzz" in my ring and middle toe, ankle, calf and some in my thigh. Looking at the root maps, it makes me think that multiple roots may be affected.  I am hoping to get an MRI next week--Dr was thinking this. Has anyone had an L5/S1 that affected multiple nerve roots?



  • Yes - I got my MRI last week and I have a small central protrusion that irritates the L5-S1 nerve.  I get odd sensations all over the place on both legs actually (my herniation says left/central).
