Have been having right leg pain for ~7 months. Finally went to see an orthopaedic doctor about a month ago at the request of my pcp back in February. He took xrays and moved my leg in such a way which made me almost jump off of the table. He asked me if my back was hurting and I said no but remembered that my lower back was hurting prior to my leg pain. Indicated that it appears my problem is a herniation at L5. Decided to do meds for a month (Medrol pack, soma, celebrex, vicodin, and a shot in my hip) which are not working. Most pain is when I sit down but also if I walk too much. My entire leg hurt and my foot stay numb constantly. Has anyone experienced this and what has been done?
