  • Call your doctor and have him look at it. Pain that severe and that recurrent is nothing to mess with- take it from someone who had knee surgery at 19 and now has minor back problems from the bad knees going untreated for years- get it checked out NOW.

  • Burning and numbness are indicative of nerve pain...could be a disc problem at L2-L3. Those are the nerves of your spine that innervate the front of your thigh. Go see your Doc to rule this out.
