    Hi dr please if you can help me.

    im in so much nerve pain in both feet/numbness come and go/tingling/pins and needles/pricking and burning in feet and lower leg and electric shock in big toe. burning thigh. and i cant walk long distance my legs killing me.

    i did mri, mri report say: posterior central disk protrusion is seen. that is minimally indenting the anterior thecal sac. however. no central canal or neuroforminal stenosis.

    is that bc all of my proplem?
    or theres soemthing else.

    thank you.

    Your complaints of “nerve pain in both feet/numbness come and go/tingling/pins and needles/pricking and burning in feet and lower leg” could be from peripheral neuropathy or from compression of roots in your back. Your MRI report however notes no compression of the nerve roots (“minimally indenting the anterior thecal sac. however. no central canal or neuroforminal stenosis”). “Minimally indenting the anterior thecal sac” generally is a small spur that should not cause symptoms.
