Thanks for choosing healthcaremagic.com
our body is supply by different nerve roots and there are few body area where the nerve roots are same. If in any these area get some sensation, same sensation would be felt different area supply by nerve root. your burning sensation may be due to same nerve root at bottom of stomach as well as at left leg.
Hernia vertebral column L5 C1. Leg pain left up. Thankyou
Hello and welcome to HCM,
Hernia is protrusion of inter-vertebral disc.
The inter-vertebral disc compresses the nerve roots.
Nerve roots emanate out from the spinal cord.
Different nerves emanate at different levels.
At level L5-S1, the nerves that emanate out supply the leg at the thigh level.
Thanks and take care
