I am new to this forum so I hope that I'm posting this in the right place.
I was hoping to get some opinions on what might be going on with me... At current I'm suffering from moderate lower left back pain, but what worries me is the left leg weakness I've been experiencing. I've developed a slight limp over the last year, and I believe that my left calf has atrophied, though that's yet to be confirmed.
My lateral (outer) left foot sensation has changed. It's a feeling of decreased sensation, not numbness but close. I get shooting pains in my calf from time to time, and when I bend over slightly, like when I brush my teeth, my left buttocks starts buzzing quite a bit.
I'm 17, turning 18 next month, so it's weird to me that I'm having these kinds of issues so young. I've yet to see a neurologist, but I've scheduled an appointment with my family Doc with hopes of getting a referral.
I'd greatly appreciate any opinions, suggestions or expertise that you all have to offer.
