Re: Are these symptoms of Cauda Equina? Please help.
Right now pain is both in the back and in the leg and and also in the buttocks or buttock bones. Like when I sit I feel pain in buttocks. (In my previous episode of disc herniation I remember that I had pain mainly only in the leg not much so in the back or the buttocks).
I also have burning sensation in the right leg like near waist area joint on right, right outer thigh and right knee joint. (I had this feeling during my previous occurrence too).
Also, I have a 4 month old MRI with me after which pain had gone away. This time is a recurrence. I think I should go for a re-scan.
As for the symptoms I feel that may be I urinate fewer times(5 to 6 times a day) and may be have a feeling of reduced strength in rectal muscles.
