I have excruciating pain in my back thigh all the way down

Customer Question

I have excruciating pain in my back thigh all the way down into my foot. My foot goes numb. I know from recent xrays that I have degenerating osteoarthritis in my lower back. I just recently had pain and numbness in both legs...this is always in the backs of my legs. Those pains are no longer, but I am left with this numbness and spazam type pain making it difficult to walk which makes the pain worse. I saw an add for these problems I have having called Neuopathy , which would maybe helped, but I can't afford $6300. with my insurance paying five or six hundred. Now I don't know what to do or where to go find the cause, Can you help me? I am a senior and am very much aware what aging can do to the body. My name is Marie
