The pain is coming from my back and knees down my shins into my ankles and feet on both legs.
I have had a MRI scan which shows a slight proud L5 vertebrae but I understand I have had this problem since I was a teenager and have put on a lot of weight over the years Which I feel has not helped.

You are going to get a steroid injection into the back that will calm down the inflamed nerve
