Pain and weakness

My husband is 50 and has had back pain since his high school football days. He had an MRI several years ago and was told he had degerative disc disease. The last few days he’s had pretty severe pain on his lower left side (back). He has weakness in the left leg as well. His job requires him to travel quite a bit and he’s been having to lift his left leg with his hands to get out of the car. We are making an appointment with the dr tomorrow. Any thoughts?
