First time posting here. I just had an MRI done on my spine and discovered problems with my neck but also arthritis in my left hip and compression of my left and right L5 nerve roots due to disc bulging. (Also other issues but these seem to be the biggest problems) My question is - I only have mild pain in my lower back, I've always just attributed it to having 2 toddlers that always want to be carried, what I do struggle with is numbness in my left outer thigh (which started during my first pregnancy 4 years ago) and numbness on the top of my left foot and calf (which started the after the birth of my second child 3 years ago).
Does it make sense to have mild pain but still have numbness? Thank you!
