This is Dr. David
being overweight can put extra pressure on your lower back and the disks between the bones of your lower back
this can cause herniated or slipped disks which can press on nerves and cause pain to radiate down your legs and into your thigh.
burning pain in your lower back can be a sign of a slipped disk and pinched nerve in your lower back
you need to see a doctor and get an MRI scan of your lower back to look for pinched nerves.
you might benefit from a steroid injection into the area to decrease swelling.
weight loss and physical therapy could help as well.
do you have a doctor you can see who can examine your back and order an MRI scan?
loosing weight will help a lot.
but can take exercise
which can be difficult if you have pain and a pinched nerve in your back
you do need to get a primary care doctor.
