Would follow up with neurologist and neurosurgeon/ orthopedist. Would get MRI to assess for disc herniation( spine disease) , and consider brain MRI to assess for multiple sclerosis, also check for diabetes, B12 deficiency, kidney and liver issues ( standard blood test) .A CT of abdomen and pelvis would assess for any masses in the area. https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/322694#causes
