Mottling behind thighs, shooting pain in legs. MRI of spine shows disc bulging. Suggestions?

I recently have noticed what appears to be a mottling appearance behind both thighs. I am not cold by nature. A MMRI of my spine reveals multiple disc bulging & I have been having pain running up & down my legs....a bulge is pressing a nerve. I am to begin PT next week to strengthen my core, but this mottling now has me concerned. Any idea what thus could be? Thank you!

Thank you for posting your query.

Mottling behind the thighs are not related to lumbar disc bulges and nerve compression.

Mottling could be due to minor bleeding underneath the skin. Are you taking medicines like aspirin? If not, you may need to check your platelet count. Please consult your GP for further evaluation.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
