    Burning in legs....Please help!!

    a few days ago I got this burning in my right leg, just one spot mainly, then today I got the same feeling in my left leg. Feels like it's on fire, I try massaging it but that seems to make it worse..

    Any ideas on what it can be and what I can do???

    Very hard to give you an advice not knowing your case. Did you have spinal surgery or you had any spinal problems? All depends...

    I went and looked at your previous posts (remember I am not a doctor) and it appears that you have been having groin pain as well. This is probably all interconnected and I suspect that you might have a compressed nerve. Did you hurt your back that you know of?

    I assume that you saw your family doctor so I would see him and bring this to his attention as well.

    Good luck.

    Yep. It sounds like there is an MRI in your future, thats really the only way to check things like that, x-rays wont show it.

    Sometimes doctors want to be conservative and will send you home a few times with generic instruction for 'back strain'. things like using ice and heat and taking an anti-inflammatory, sometimes a pain med and/or muscle relaxers.

    If your doctor does or has told you this, it is very important that you go back to see him if the symptoms continue, thats when they know its time to take a better look.

    HTH, Fabby

    I haven't done any damage to my back that I'm aware of... I've told my doctor and they haven't really done any good helping me...
