Can a slipped lumbar disk cause sharp calf, arch cramps, occasional line of pain down back of leg, occasional numbness in calf with mild cramping?
Yes: The symptoms that you describe are consistent with a lumbar disc herniation. You should consider seeking medical evaluation.See 1 more doctor answer
Loss of sensation: The leg can have decreased feeling of pain, light touch, or even buzzing of a tuning fork. This could be due to spinal cord, brain, or peripheral nerve pathology.
Pinched Nerve: While there are many causes of leg pain and numbness one of the most common causes is lumbar radiculopathy. This occurs when one of the nerves leaving the back gets compressed as it leaves the spine and travels down the leg. Compression may occur due to degenerative/bulging discs or arthritic bone spurs contacting the nerve. See your physician if these symptoms last longer than 2 weeks.
You can: No imaging test shows or explains everything.
Two likely causes: Positioning of your legs could have resulted in nerve compression (especially the common peroneals) pressure of the baby's body during passage thru the birth can could have compressed the sacral plexus, a large group of nerves to each leg. Either way numbness can last from days to many months depending on severity. If in doubt about diagnosis, see neurologist and have an emg.
Multiple possibility: I recommend you see a good neurologist. Ther are many possibilities, including spinal cord, nerve pbs, pernicious anemia, multiple sclerosis etc. Please see a neurologist. You can get a referral from calling your local hospital, or call director of a neuro ICU and speak to the director for the name of the best neurologist in town.
Could: Be a pinched lower back nerve from herniated disc, but you need further evaluation to precise origin. Good luck!
Numbness: If you have suffered a nerve injury to your lower back, this can cause sensory loss in your feet and legs. If you have a herniated disk, which puts pressure on the spinal nerves, this can lead to leg and feet numbness. Vascular claudication occurs when there is plaque build up, which restricts the flow of blood to an area. It can cause a tingling sensation as well as pain and numbness.
