Thanks for your question and concern. The burning sensation your mother is experiencing might be due to some sciatic nerve irritation. But you say that her conditions haven’t improved even after medication. So, it is strongly advised to get a re-evaluation from a urologist and do lab tests as he suggests. Sometimes, you will have to do an ultrasound checkup for detailed examination and to find out real cause, for getting better treatment. Good luck.
