What do pain and numbness on the right leg indicate?

I have had pain in my right leg. It starts in my butt all the way down to my calf. My foot gets numb at times and it is painful to walk sometimes. I already have a herniated disc, osteoarthritis, and mild scoliolis. Today both my feet are kind of burning and tingly/prickly. The bone where my hip socket is tender to the touch.

You should get an MRI scan done and know how much is disc herniating and impinging nerve compression happening because of that.

You can get epidural steroid infiltration done to reduce pain especially if not preferring for surgical repair. Epidural infiltration is day care procedure and easily done.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
