In brief: Sometimes

The scalene muscle in the neck can pinch the nerves of the brachial plexis if they are overgrown and tight.
There is also a piriformis syndrome in the pelvis that can compress nerve.

If your MRI scan does not show any nerve impingement, compression of the sciatic nerve as in a piriformis syndrome is a possibility but should only affect one leg, not both.
