C5-6 issues most likely would affect left shoulder and left arm issues.

painful left leg would be more likely to be due to pinched nerves in the lower leg or poor circulation in the left leg

you may need a lower back MRI scan and a doppler vascular ultrasound to check for perfusion and circulation in your lower leg

how old are you?

what speech problems are you having?
