l5-s1 sciatica, but pins and needles in chest and lower arms?
I have a l5-s1 herniated disc and annular tear. This causes sciatica which burns and electric type(pins n needles) in left buttocks and into my foot.. the symptoms are worse when Im sitting and after Ive laid down for a few hours at night.. I dont have any issues in the cervical area but when the electric shock gets at its worse the feelings radiate or feel as is they are into my arms and chest but only in my left leg.. I dont see the neursurgeon again until 12-6-10 and should have PLIF later the following week.. Im baffelled and was wanting do know if anyone else has had this occur, or someone may know what is causing this? Thank you very much
