My skin on my right leg feels sensitive like a bad sunburn

This answer was rated:

My skin on my right leg feels sensitive like a bad sunburn but my other leg is ok. Now I feel the sensitive skin is spreading to my back & butt. I feel fine. Why is that??
Hi,
   This is one of the initial signs of a mild nerve compression at the spinal cord level. The burning sensation is a neurological sign and needs evaluation by an Orthopedecian. The only point of difference is that you are not having any pain. Usually the neurological symptoms are associated with pain. But a rare presentation with initial neurological signs followed with pain can also be there.
