This is Dr. David

you could have a pinched nerve in your lower back causing this burning sensation in your legs down

you could have a herniated disk or pinched nerve exiting the neuro foramen in your lower back causing this pain.

is it in both legs?

do you have any lower back pain?

do you have a doctor you can see who can do a lower back MRI scan for you to look for pinched nerves?
