In brief: Evaluation

First, a clinical exam with a history taken to see if symptoms are consistent with spinal stenosis then most likely a MRI or ct would be indicated next to confirm diagnosis.

In brief: Several

This is diagnosed with a good history, exam and certain x-rays.
One would usually see your pcp first and then perhaps an orthopedist, neurosurgeon or neurologist or occupational medicine specialist.
