In brief: Need MRI, neurology
These symptoms may be from spinal nerve and/or cord involvement from the spondylosis.
Have your doctor evaluate with at least a MRI study, and possibly a neurology evaluation, to determine the source of the issue. Intervention would be based upon the medical work-up that gets performed.
