Dr. David :

numbness in your leg can be from a pinched nerve in your lower back from a slipped disk which can cause numbness and pain in the leg.

Dr. David :

an MRI scan of your lower back can help see if there is a pinched nerve in your lower back.

Dr. David :

poor circulation into your leg can also cause numbness and pain in the leg as well. this is called claudication when you have poor circulation into your leg.

Dr. David :

a doppler ultrasound of the leg can check for circulation and blood flow into the leg.

Dr. David :
