The piriformis muscle, found in the lower portion of the spine, may have spasms that compress the sciatic nerve, resulting to lower back pain. Inflammation caused by infections and tumors in the spinal cord or spine may cause the sciatic nerve to be compressed, resulting to back pain and sciatica.
This condition may arise from long periods of walking, injuries, inflammation of the tendons due to rheumatoid arthritis or even wearing new shoes.  These things compress the posterior tibial nerve, causing pain on the foot, a tingling or burning sensation surrounding the inner ankle or sole, and leg numbness. There are cases of leg numbness, tingling feet and toes where the cause cannot be determined.  Listed below are some of these conditions.


This condition brings about tingling and numbness in the arms, legs and other parts of the body.  You may also experience fatigue, urinating, hearing and vision problems.
This is the swelling of one segment of the spinal cord.  The symptoms of which are pain on the lower back, leg numbness, burning, tingling and partial paralysis of both legs, bladder and bowel dysfunction, respiratory problems, loss of appetite, headache and fever and weakness in the arms.

Most cases of foot and leg numbness, tingling and pain cannot be resolved if the cause is not treated.  Treatments differ for each case, ranging from altering the patient’s activities, to taking in medication for the pain and inflammation, to surgery, or a combination of these.


Depending on the extent of damage to the nerve and regardless of the origin, it generally takes weeks, even months, to recover.  Loose-fitting clothes and use of suspenders instead of belts are recommended to treat and prevent further foot and leg numbness, tingling and pain.
