: I am so glad you posted this when you did! I am in the same situation. One of the screws in my back at the L2-3 level is putting pressure on the left side of my thecal sac and is impinging/irritating a nerve, which is also on the left side. However, I have this permanent-horrific-shooting-stabbing-tingling-burning feeling in my right butt check, down the back of my right leg, and clear into the toes on my right foot. The left side of me is perfectly fine. The doc says it is not due to the pressure on the thecal sac or the screw impinging a nerve because it is in the wrong leg....yet he doesn't have a clue what could possibly be the cause of the pain in the right leg. This pain is consistently getting worse and I've gone to the ER for it twice in the last week, however no drugs touch it. Not nerve pain meds, not narcotics, nothing. I am completely baffled by this.

I am glad to hear someone say that they believe that the intestinal problem (like regular or emptying completely) can be pushing on the nerves connected to the back problems. I notice this very strongly after a few days of not going then after I either take an enema or laxative and after the movement the problems seems to subside alot! I believe this person knows. Haven't had anyone say that yet. I do believe intestional problems can make the back worst
