A 28-year-old female asked:
can a multilevel bulging disc in my l4-l5 cause my legs to ache constantly and affect my knee joints making it difficult to walk? at times my left knee will go numb and they both feel like they will give out. just wondering if it's all connected?

Legs & L4L5 discs: Generally everything in our bodies are connected. Disc bulging will compress nerves from the region innervated, and cause lower extremity symptoms. Consult with a neurologist or ortho.
