I think I have a pinched nerve because the pain is going down my right leg, which gives me a dead leg feeling and I often get heat and cold sensations in my lower leg also very painful lately. Doctor has started me on Endep and when I complained of continued pain he increased the dose. Any advise will be appreciated. I feel I need some type of massage or manipulation?

I was just wondering if you have ever had an MRI on your lower back? It sounds to me that you are experiencing the exact symptoms as I did and it was a ruptured disc, it never hurt in my back in the beginning but I would have leg pain, one day in my thigh, next in my foot, next in my calf, and would feel like it was on fire, would feel like I could barely life my foot to get up a step. I some permament loose of feeling in one leg and reduced reflexes because ofit. Just think you might want to ask your Doctor for a MRI if you haven't had one, and just so you know, I had regular x-rays and it didn't show up on those, just on the MRI. Good luck, hope this helps, I know the long hard road to back pain and it's rough. Hope it works out for you!!
