I have a herniated disc in my neck C5, my neuro says it isn't bad enough for surgery etc.
Anyhow I do have mild scolosis in my lower right thorasic spine.
I haven't had any x-rays done for my lower back, but I've been having lower back pain for awhile.
For the last 8 months I've experienced three times where my left leg felt weak and have fallen. Not sure if then it was due to emotions or what. Now that I have my emotions pretty much in check, I notice every morning my left ankle hurts and I'm always limping for awhile.
Then sometimes I'll get a cramp in my left buttock, and some pain through out the left leg, with some fallen asleep type numbness in the left foot and burning pains in the foot and toes.
I know I have pain in my knees when I go down stairs and have had electric shock feeling sometimes in the front of my shins.
My question is, could this be pain associated with a possible lower back /spine/herniated disc problem?
I see the neuro in two weeks to tackle this issue. Could my cervical herniation perhaps radiate down that far?
It seems my whole left side has been having problems for months. I do have minor similar problems in the arms on the right side.
