When I was just diagnosed with a re-herniation at L4-L5, with a nerve-root impingment at L4, my doctor said my symptoms (right leg pain in hip, calve, bottom of heal, etc.) are not indicative of a L4-L5 herniation that it is more for the area of L5-S1 (which is where I have a buldge). He stated that L4-L5 is where the pain should be, and I have that too, but my spinal cord stimulator helps with that.

I am just a little confused over this, because I think I saw a new post on the boards that stated a guy who at a L4-L5 herniation had similiar symptoms like me.

Can anyone HELP!
