Nerve irritation: L5-s1 disk herniation (slipped disc) can irritate either the L5 or s1 nerve root. Nerve irritation can cause leg pain, weakness, numbness. The outside of the leg typically means the L5 nerve root is being affected. See your doctor, who can decide if MRI is needed.

Nerve impingement: If a nerve is injured, it will have less ability to send an impulse to the muscles that it supplies. Such an injury or impingement can be do to an injury or influence from somewhere from the spine on down. It could also occur from injury/tightness of the muscle (s) themselves.

Get checked: If you feel pain AND weakness, then you may have nerve injury. Based on the information you provided, I can't be more specific regarding why you have this, what it means & what can you do about it. I recommend you see a clinician for a diagnosis & treatment plan. Hope that helps.

My husband twisted his back 2 weeks ago- and now his right leg is numb and weak and has decreased function. What is going on?

My husband twisted his back 2 weeks ago- and now his right leg is numb and weak and has decreased function. What is going on?

Nerve: It sounds like he has ruptured a disc with resulting pressure and irritation of a nerve root. Without further information & evaluation, I am unable to tell which level is involved. I would recommend that you contact your pcp for immediate examination. He will get the proper diagnostic studies and refer you to an appropriate specialist as needed.

Incomplete informati: Is there pain also associated in right leg when you stand up? Since you have " degenerative disc disease" it seems that you do have pain in leg. If so your weakness in right leg is likely to be due compression of sciatic nerve in sitting position which is temporary. Compression is relieved by standing and you feel better.

Random intermittent lower right leg pain and weakness off/on when walking started today?

Leg pain/weakness: It is either intermittent claudication-related to blood flow issues. Or more likely neurogenic claudication, being related to a pinched nerve, herniated or bulging disc, or spurs about the nerve roots.

When I walk I feel I put much load on my right leg and I feel its more heavy and weak than my left, I also have lower back pain for 2-3 years!?

Be seen: If you are having back pain and unilateral leg weakness, it would be wise to be seen just to make sure it is not something that could potentially worsen. An mri to evaluate your nerve canal and a detailed exam will likely yield the correct diagnosis. There are many possibilities, but u would certainly get it checked into.

Right UE/LE numbness: Would seek medical attention at doctor /ER/urgent care within week. Could be nerve issue-sciatica and cervical impingment (occurs at times in young especially if history of strenous activities, gymnastics), discitis, lymphadenopathy, clot or arterial narrowing or could be a process like multiple sclerosis.
