Cervical Spine Stenosis and Hip/Leg/foot

Just wondering here...
Does any of you with cervical spine stenosis have pain and/or radiating pain in you hip, leg, and/or foot on one particular side of body?
Thx for your replies in advance.

    I have mild cervical stenosis in which I never had the pain you described.

    But I had severe lumbar stenosis (Surgery in 3/31/16) and had the same symptoms as you described.   Until my surgery it was always only on the right side.   The back pain has improved so much, but the nerve damage is going to still take some time.

    I believe you told us all what the MRI reports indicated, but please excuse me, I wasnt sure if there were any lumbar discs also involved.

    Thanks Ron for your reply. I only had an MRI for my cervical spine.

    I am going to see the doctor who referred me to NS in a few weeks, so I will ask all the pains that I've been experiencing. My hip to leg pain has been more pronounced than neck/shoulder pain at the moment. It seems I can t get any break from the pain business. :/ 

    A couple more questions:
    1. Did you take an EMG Test prior to your surgery? 
    2. How many days before your surgery did the doctor's office contact you to go through pre-surgery exam, seminar,  and/or prep?

    Thanks again.
