Dear *****ients, because of the symptoms of a pathology of the spine, we have to rule it out.
Alterations in the sensitivity of the lower limbs have the main cause of lumbar spine problems.
In the lumbar spine are born the nerves that go to the lower limb. when these are compressed or pinched as a result of muscle contracture, spinal disc injury or spinal instability.
these pinchings generate what are known as nerve irritation neuropathies, which generate alterations in nerve conduction.
In your case, I suggest a physical examination of the limb where a spinal MRI and an electromyogram may be suggested to define the cause.
The treatment consists of muscular strengthening of the spine which generates stability and improves the spine. in some cases, a neuromodulator such as pregabalin is suggested to improve the irritated nerve

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
