Question: I have a burning sensation in my lower left abdomen. The burning sensation feels like someone is touching my skin with a hot knife. It does not feel as though it is internal. I shaved the area to see if anything was visible,I could not see any cuts or signs of irritation. The only thing I have done is strain the small of my back shoveling snow. Both the burning sensation and the back pain became apparent at about the same time.

Brief Answer:
CT and MRI of spine

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Noted your history, Medical History, Current Medications, Allergies and understood the concerns well.
With history of prostate cancer I would advise you the following with explanation:
CT and MRI of the spine to see if there is any nerve entrapment, compression, secondaries in the spine.
This is so as the presentation is of burning sensation with feeling of touching the skin with with hot knife, without any rash at the moment indicate for nerve problem.

I hope this answer helps you, please feel free to ask for further relevant queries if you feel that there is a gap of communication.
With Regards.

QUESTION FOR ORTHOPEDIC CONSULTANT. Hi, I have been suffering from acute lower back pain and sciatica for a long time now. I am also unable to lie on my side as I get an ache and discomfort at the side of my thighs.

At L5/S1 there is a circumferential disc bulge but no significant foraminal stenosis or neural compression. What is the best course of treatment you would recommend please as the pain has made my life very debilitating. Many thanks. Donata
