I am having diabetes and is in control. But from yesterday my right leg (exactly the bone under knee) is having a burn on touching it. The part colour has also changed. Could you tell me what happened?
I am 35. While skipping I have hurt portion below knee. Since then I have severe pain that refuses to subside. I am in a state of quandry not knowing what to do. Have I tore my ligaments. I can't bend my knees, and it is very painful to get up from a sitting position and while trying to sit again. Please help.
The sciatic nerve spreads down the spine till the legs. The pain in this nerve can feel like sparks running down your back of leg from buttock area. Anything that puts weight on or aggravates this nerve can cause pain that shoots down the back of one butt cheek or thigh. The amount of pain can increase gradually. Sciatica may feel like a gentle ache, a sharp sensation or extreme uneasiness. Sciatica can bring feelings of shivering, numbness and weakness.
Some of the most regular symptoms of sciatic pain include:
- Pain in the buttock and/or back of leg when sitting or walking
- Hip pain
- Burning sensation in the leg
- Numbness or trouble moving the leg or foot
- Shooting pain that makes it hard to stand up properly
The most common causes of sciatic pain include:
- Lumbar spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spinal channel in the lower back)
- Degenerative disk disease (breakdown of discs, which go about as pads between the vertebrae)
- Spondylolisthesis (a condition in which one vertebra slips over another)
- Piriformis syndrome
- Muscle spasms
How to treat:
Visit doctor early, have a proper diagnosis. As you can see that several diseases can cause sciatica, diagnosis is very important before starting treatment. Outline of treatment:
- No exercises during acute painful condition. No absolute rest is also needed. Do normal daily activities.
- Medications to relieve nerve pain, like pregabalin etc.
- Interventional pain management is the best way to confirm the diagnosis, relieve pain, and cure the condition.
- Surgery is rarely needed.
