Hello

I am doctor Thomas, double board certified doctor with over 20 years of clinical experience. I will give you and answer or ask you questions, and follow up with you until you have your answer.

You would have pain.
And you would have pain radiating downward.

Pain would typically travel to the inner thigh or middle of the leg, but not always.

You might also have weakness.

Rarely would one level [L3] be involved in dengerative spine problems.
