Too much: In all those anatomic distributions, I don't believe there is any one single diagnosis that can be invoked as an explanation. I'm afraid you have numerous areas of rheumatism and arthritis - I don't think your mild scoliosis is a factor here.

I am concerned that you may have a disc rupture. Since you have heel numbness the problem sounds like a problem at L5-S1 . Is the numbness extensive. Do you have a foot drop-heard to raise your forefoot?

Radiculopathy : An irritation of a nerve in the back can potentially cause pain and/or numbness that runs from the back down the leg into the foot. An mri may be helpful to look for an area of nerve impingement in the lumbar area. The nerves in the arm exit the spine above the low back and so not likely related although theoretically impingement in the neck can affect the arm and leg. Don’t hesitate to be seen

Unlikely.: The most fertile time of the month is about 2 weeks from the start of your period assuming that you have a period every 28 days. If your periods are shorter than 28 days, it is possible that you could have hit the fertile time. You will have to wait until you miss your period to get a pregnancy test. There is no way to tell if you are pregnant where you are in your cycle now.
