Pain in back, right thigh, knee, herniated, bulging discs, sudden sweating. Treatment?

I have extreme pain in my back and right thigh and right knee . In my back I have 2 herniated and 2 bulging discs and I recently had an mri done on my knee but I haven t got the results yet. Every day about 10 to 15 times a day for anywhere from 2 to 5 mins I feel an intense heat that makes me sweat profusely even in winter weather and I m just curious why that happens. I m 6 feet tall and I weigh 260 lbs. but this has been happening for years even when I was only 185 lbs.

Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It appears like irritation of the nerve roots by the herniated disc.
You may need decompression / fixation - before the nerve gets paralysed...
The neurologist and orthopaedician as a team can formulate the mode of treatment. Very likely surgery will be needed.
Weight reduction helps greatly in the long term.
Pain relievers and Physiotherapy offer temporary relief.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
