What are the next steps? When do I get a response?
Expert:  Dr. Anil replied 7 months ago.


I understand your concern.

Well your all symptoms are related to nerve impingement in lumbosacral spine which cause numbness,tingling sensation,intermittent pain at certain positions.

You need to be seen by a neurologist for a clinical examination and undergo MRI of lumbosacral spine,NCV with EMG.

Physical therapy can be helpful.

Hope this helps.
