    What will ease lower back pain and leg numbness?

    What could cause lower back pain, muscle aches, back of the leg numbness, and hip pain? An MRI of my spine was clean and a nerve test was negative for a pinched nerve. The neurologist is sending me for an MRI on my brain. Pain still radiates down my leg. I am also very off balance and aching in many other areas.

    Sounds like your Neurologist is doing all the right tests to find out why you are having these symptoms. Many places in the nervous system can be causing these problems. The entire spinal cord and the brain are the next best place to look for the cause of numbness and tingling. Another consideration is Lymes Disease or another infectious process affecting the nervous system.


    Keep working with your doctors and I am sure someone will turnover the right rock.
