Hello and welcome. So, your doctor didn't recommend anything for you with these findings? Pfftt. They should have in my opinion. You have a narrowing of the nerve passageways in the spine. Sure, that's going to cause some issues. Or likely is the reason for yours. There are non invasive strategies to try such as restorative yoga (you'd need a referral from your doctor to find someone who specializes in that), exercises (again, a physical therapist specializing in this kind of work), alternating hot and cold compresses in the area, nosteriodals. But the've let that you go for two years? yeesh. It's mild to moderate which is good (not severe) but I'd certainly want a follow up to find a next step. Let me know what you think of what I've written here!
Hey, thanks for answering back. I'm glad you got to the Cleveland clinic. Sounds like they are taking good care of you. When do yo use the pt?
I have a disc herniation at L5 S1 and like you I have numbness and burning in my right thighs for years now but its now moved to my other thigh as well. The right is worse then the left but it's getting to the point no matter what position i am in the numbness is present.
