Foot Pain and A Higher Source

    I am having foot pain only. It may be from higher up. I feel it in my buttock too and some faint pain sometimes in my leg. I have a clean back MRI, though. Is it possible the L5 nerve impingement causing foot pain can be found in the hip/glute muscles instead
  1. Dr Blake's comment: 

  2. For sure, you should read about piriformis syndrome, but the sciatic nerve can also get hanged up in the hamstrings or behind the knee. Rich
