    Over the weekend I was getting out of my car and when I went to take a step, I had a burining awful pain down my
    leg and up my spine. I couldnt even lift my foot without this pain much less walk. Im still having twinges or spasms in my back. I was curious to know if any of you had this happen to you and what it was or what you did to help.

    A disk bulging in your low back pinching a nerve that supplys feelings in your buttucks and down the leg~
    I deal with this one every now and then.Other than PT and massage.....You probably should see a bone dr.
    I know how painful this is!!! Mine would let up sometimes on its own...but it always returns.
    I hope you get to the bottom of this :)

    I started having burning sensations about a month and a half ago. The burning started in my legs and soon moved up my back and down both arms. What types of meds are you taking?
