back pain/leg numbness
I have had xrays, mri, and ct myelogram with contrast of lumbar spine. All tests came out as normal with some arthritic changes in lumbar area. I have pain in my left lower back/hip area. I also have numbness that goes down the outside of my left leg. No nerves are being pinched according to the tests. It is seemed to be thought that I have degenerative disc disease and that this is the cause of the pain. I was wondering if the leg numbness, which they say is ITBS, may be contributing to the back pain somehow.
