In brief: Spinal stenosis

A pars defect, may be associated with a spondyloslisthesis or slip of the vertebrae and if so may cause muscle spasms, pinched nerves, radiculopathy, and ultimately disability and neuorological injury.
Needs appropriate evaluation to define recommended treatment.

In brief: Get checked

I would certainly be checked, there are multiple potential causes and the numbness in the legs is particularly concerning in a 23 year old.
An exam and appropriate studies can usually determine the cause and give information about prognosis and treatment options. Thank you.
