Is radiating pain in the leg due to sacralisation?
Q: I am a 27 years old female weighing 55 kg. I get radiating pain down my left leg from my back. I got an X-ray of my back done, which showed partial sacralisation of my L5 vertebra. Is radiating pain due to sacralisation?
A:Your symptoms are most likely due to compression of the nerve in the back bone, which is supplying the leg and not due to sacralisation. I would suggest you to undergo MRI scan of the Lumbo sacral spine.
