Neck Pain on Left Side of Neck and Left Leg

Neck Pain on Left Side of Neck and Left Leg

I've had pain on the left side of my neck for almost a year. I also have pain on my left leg that goes all the way into my toes. Could these symptoms be related to eachother?


  • What are your issues with your neck? It is possible that certain discs in your neck can affect your leg and foot. If you do a search for a dermatome map, you can see where the nerve paths travel throughout and can affect different parts of your body. You should really discuss this with your doctor however, as it all depends on what your issues are and at what levels. Or it could also be your lower back, or you could have completely separate issues with your leg. Your doctor can order the appropriate tests (MRI, EMG, etc) to figure out what the underlying problem is.

  • Hi

    I've wanted to have tests done but my insurance was cut off and I'm getting a ton of bills so haven't been able to see anyone. I'm getting treatment at a hospital paying a sliding scale and have told them about my symptoms and still waiting to get referred to a neurologist by them. Thank you for your reply.
