My neurologist said I have mild nerve damage in my lower extremities. Can it be linked to my low back pain and sore neck? Should i be concerned?

Not enough info to know for sure if things are linked.

In brief: Possible

Nerves that go down to the legs can be damaged as they come out of the back.
This is rare at a young age. Your doctor should investigate the possible causes of nerve damage to determine appropriate treatment.
