Chronic Pain in Calves, and Feet

my fingers and toes tighten so badly that im unable to move them. its like they become stone from the tightening muscles.and fuse together, i've been to a spine specialist and of course told my Primary care doctor but they can't seem to explain or come up with an answer. I am gettng a MRI for Cervical myelopyhy, Thoracic Myeopathy, and Thoracic radiculopathy on Friday. My feet are in constant pain and they tingle with pins and needles and my calfs ache contanttly and get severe charley horses in them the charley horse can last anywhere from 2 to 5 minutes of SEVERE pain and leave my calves so sore i can barely walk for hours and the soreness causes me to limp for days. . I can't hold on to things and im always dropping crap. My arms and legs also get very weak and heavy. Is there any advise you can give me as to why this might be happening or if its happened to anyone else here? not wanting medicial advise, just wanting to see if this might be happening to anyone else.
