I have a herniated disk in the neck area. Later, my right hand started tingling and the numbness grew more pronounced. I also started having burning pain on the back of both thighs. I have had some muscle twitching down my right arm. I am having accuracy issues with typing now. I had another epidural and trigger point injects four weeks ago, but it does not seem to have done much this time. This week, I started having numbness in my toes and some burning there. My legs just do not feel quite right and maybe a little heavy. The thighs are still burning on and off. Do you think it is possible that my cervical issues at C4-C5 or C6-C7 could be responsible for both the hand and legs? Do you think I might have a lower back issue?

Thank you doctor,
I just woke up and had a very bad pain and was unable to move my neck side to side. However, this gets better when I put my head backwards. The tingling starts in my right thumb. About a week ago, I had more tingling and burning sensation in my toes than my feet and ankles. There is no weakness or difficulty with urine. I am not taking any medication. This only presents when lying down on my spine. Thank you.
