A 37-year-old man, normally active and otherwise healthy, develops a sudden pain in his back and an ‘electric shock’ down his left leg. Over 5 weeks the back pain resolves but he is left with intermittent severe pain in the left leg which radiates down his calf into the sole of the foot and little toe. His right leg has been unaffected and he has normal sphincter function.
