Thanks for writing in.

According to your description, it looks like that you are suffering from haemorrhoids.

Your low back pain in this condition is likely due to fact that haemorrhoids require so much blood that they drain from other sources, so back pain occurs due to lack of blood flow.

To avoid burning sensation you have to:-

1) Take fibres in meals.
2) Drink plenty of water.
3) Apply creams.

Let me know if blood tinge is noticed.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have any more concerns.

Thanks for your query again

Your low back pain and its radiation and burning sensation in your right side of thigh might be due to sciatica which occurs due to compression over sciatic nerve which runs through your hips & thighs.
So nerve root get irritated & pain run through your back and thigh. It causes burning sensation in your thigh.

Hope I answered your query.
