Burning sensation on leg

I awoke to a strong burning along the outside of my right leg from my knee to my hip.  When I reached down to touch it, it was numb! No surface feelings at all. My lower back hurts so I wonder if they are connected?
Thank you so much

Are you still numb? I have a nerve injury in a knee that left my knee numb. (Don't try Bengay or anything like that it'll be very painful!) I've lived with this for over a year. I experience burning or a cold water drop when I'm lying down. Wish I knew how to remedy it or what it is. I've just been living with it.
I was told by my doctor it's syaticia!  No I want to get a message for it and also go swimming which also helps a lot.
