Specializes in Neurology

Causation: Maybe damage to disc, facet joint, sacroiliac joints, lumbar stenosis, bilateral sciatica. These are all speculations, as not feasible to pin down in absence of examination. See your doctor and decide whether a physiatrist or a surgeon is next step. Radiological studies will illuminate.
