What could cause pain in left hip/lower back for last 3 years. Also have discomfort in left leg at time, & numbing with slashing pain thru arms & legs?

Back issues. Degenerative back disease would probably be first on the list. Left hip pain is most likely referred, but if lower back (lumbar spine) is ok, next thing would be to rule out sacroiliac joint problem and hip problem per se. Hip problem would not account for pain in the arm, but back problem especially neck issues would.
