I have a fractured L5 transverse process

Patient: I have a fractured L5 transverse process and experiencing tingling/chills down sides of my legs. Should I get a second opinion?

Doctor: HelloThank you for posting your query on ATD.I have gone through your query and understand your concern. Transvers e process fracture is unlikely to cause tingling and numbness. There can be associated soft tissue injury along with it such as disc prolapse. You can take a second opinion about it. Rest and Analgesic is helpful in pain relief. Mecobalamin help in reducing tingling and numbness. Hope your query get answered.Wishing you a good health.Take care.
