Question: Hello. I've experienced a "wet" sensation down the back of my left leg. This started a few weeks ago and was isolated to my hamstring area. This feeling has moved further than just my hamstring but is still isolated in my left leg. There is no pain and seems to occur only when moving around.
Thank you, XXXXXXX

Brief Answer:
Get xray done.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have read your query.

Symptoms you are explaining may be due to nerve compression or irritation in lumbosacral region which supply lower limb, previous trauma, diabetes.

I advise you to have fasting blood sugar levels, xray lumbosacral spine done in AP and Lateral view and send me the report.

I want to see present condition of vertebrae and disc spaces.

Till then you can take cap. pregabalin75mg+methylcobalamine750mcg at night, by prescription of your doctor as this medicine is not over the counter.

Avoid weightlifting, upstairs as much as you can.

Apply hot packs.

I hope you find this information useful.

Thanks,

Dr.CHANDER XXXXXXX XXXXXXX

My MIR report reads: well circumscribed mass in the left paradoxical muscle at the level of c4_5 deep to the left semispinalis muscle belly . Marginally increased from 9x8x14mm to12x11x16 . There is a slight mass effect and deviation of surrounding muscles.Impression: previously noted mass along g left paraspinal muscle at c4_5 has very marginally increased from 4_17_13. It does show enhancement and could represent a small peripheral nerve sheath tumor or other soft tissue mass. My question is ? What s is the next step? From reading this report, is this something I should be alarmed about?
