Nerve impingement: can be caused by being sandwiched between two spinal bones, pressed by a bulging. It can cause muscle spasm and back pain. Prevention treatment is always recommended. This condition must be professionally managed. See interventional pain management specialist for definitive diagnosis and management. It is the same as a pinched nerve.

Left leg numbness: Your symptoms are likely caused by disc bulge or herniation, other possible cause is foramen narrowing or facet join arthritis. Either way if you have persistent numbness you may consider seeing spine specialist to see what exactly is going on and get some advise about treatment options.
