New md said emg showed nerve damage in foot and lower leg. Is it possible my osteoarthrosis of lumbar spine is causing the foot swelling /numbing.?

In brief: Yes.

While swelling is uncommon, numbess is quite common, and ir presages motor nerve damage.
You need to have it examined. You now know which sciatic nerve roots are involved by your test results. I applaud his getting this study early. You now need an MRI of your spine to see what type of lesion you might have, and how correctable vit is!
