What Specialist Would I Need To See If I Have Muscle Weakness In One Leg
PMD: Typically this would first be evaluated by your primary medical doctor and then a neurologist.
Muscle weakness is either a subjective or objective symptom based on history or formalized testing. As a result, any complaint of weakness needs to be correlated with testing that can bring out that weakness, which sometimes involves putting that muscle in an isolated and 'disadvantaged' scenario to assess adequately. Such weakness can have multiple etiologies from ...Read more

Nerve damage: If you have unilateral muscle weakness and atrophy there has to be an injury or impingement of the nerve which innervates that part of your leg. A demyelinating process such as MS may also lead to muscle atrophy and weakness unilaterally. Other causes may be trauma to that muscle, prolonged immobilization in a cast, or not weight bearing on the leg can lead to loss of strength and muscle mass.See 1 more doctor answer

You need and exam: Clearly, something has changed in you at least with respect with the strength in one limb and since it hasn't gotten any better over a long period of time you should have it looked it by a doctor.

See your doctor: See your doctor. Many possibilities. Need examination and blood work.
If I have herniated disc-no pain, will riding bike in the "aero" position lead to worse leg muscle weakness?
Herniated Disc: Not necessarily. It depends on whether there is any nerve compression and where, anatomically, the compression is located. Your doctor can provide better advice by performing an MRI of the spine, if he hasn't already. Unless you have had sciatica or a previous history of leg weakness, you can always try a bicycle run and see if it affects you.

NOT AS PREDICTED: Your recovery is slow at best, but not necessarily an area of worry, unless there is a problem with your femoral nerve. Strongly urge followup visit in next few days with your surgeon, and find out if this is just a slow recovery or a post-operative complication which needs to be addressed.

Can a pinched spinal cord in the neck cause muscle weakness and astrophy on your whole arm and leg muscle. Can a pinch back spinal cause same.
To involve the leg: There would have to be spinal cord involvement or a second lesion below the cervical level. If you develop increased tone and reflexes to go along with weakness and atrophy the problem may be further upstream (eg stroke). If the issue is "where is the lesion? " the answer may need to come from a neurologist. That's a big part of what we do.See 2 more doctor answers
