Leg pain, numbness, and or tingling can be a sign of several different conditions. In some cases leg pain can be a slight annoyance that comes and goes such as soreness from exercise or maybe sitting in a way that is uncomfortable for the leg. In other cases, leg pain may be a very serious condition with severe pain that prevents you from preforming daily activities, walking, or even making it troublesome to sleep.
Unless caused by specific injury many leg pains are caused from problems with the lower back. These problems stem from one specific nerve, the sciatic nerve that can become compressed or “pinched” from various problems with the spine and herniated discs.

Many times these symptoms can be due to over use of the legs, injuries such as tendinitis, shin splints, stress fractures, or plantar fasciitis. Other causes of leg pain, numbness, and tingling can be due to diseases or as stated before, problems in the lower back.
Leg Pain Causes:
- Lower Back Problems – A variety of problems can arise from poor posture, back injury, degenerative disc disease, and spinal stenosis. These conditions can affect the back and lead to problems in the legs.
- Herniated Discs – Small gel like disc in the back that helps to support the spinal column. These discs can weaken and protrude outward causing nerve pain, which can affect the legs.
- Sciatica – Nerve pain due to the compression of the sciatic nerve. When the sciatic nerve is compressed it can cause immense pain in the lower back, rear, and down into the legs. The pain can make it difficult to walk or lay down properly.
- Arthritis – Inflammation and pain of the joints, this can cause pain in the leg joints where the bones meet together making it painful to move the joints.
