Possibly: The first thing is that it is not normal to have pain and weakness in the legs in an otherwise healthy 22 year old. An MRI of the lumbar spine is a structural test, but in your case it should me noted: it would not normally show the coccyx unless specifically asked, it could be coming from other areas of the spine, and finally it might not be a structural problem and and so may not show up on MRI
