    Hi to all I am so glad that I found this site, I have a major problem with my ankle and foot, but let me first start off by saying that, I have Herniated Disc from L3 to L5 and S1 damage as well. Also told that the nerve that is causing me all the pain going down my leg is the Sinuvertebral Nerve, because of the grade 4 Annulus tear.

    With that being said, the problem with my foot and ankle. My left Ankle has a large Knot like thing right on the Medial Mallous, I had a untrasound done and it said that the were not sure what it was but it was not fluid, called it a focal lession. I have painwhen i walk all the time, if i try to put it up it still hurts, to flex toes toward me it hurts so bad it cause me to tear. and i can not bend my toes down. the area around where the foot and leg meet, cause extreme pain also.

    My question is Is it possible that this sinuvertebral nerve can cause this problem, my back has been this way for 6 years yesterday. I have never had surgery. (to many disc damaged) I have searched on the internet to see after the sinuvertebral nerve decends what other nerve it can effect on its way down, does it run into the tibial nerve, the Sciatic nerve, or what, and is it possible that this is the cause that over time it has cause new problems?

    If anyone can help i would be greatful for any info,. I have been back to the doctor that sent me to the untrasound but he set me up a appointment on Aug 17th 2009 to see a surgeon., I tried to get him to get a earlier appointment but he says that I can wait.. However he does not live with trying to walk or should i say hop on the right foot because the left i am afraid it is going to give way.

    Thank you so much for this site, Have a great day..

    I think you would do better to address your question to a neurosurgeon or a neurosurgical problems website. Why not try the doctor who made your neurological diagnosis.
