Cause for severe abdominal pain, numbness in left leg? Lumbar MRI done, result unremarkable

Hello. My husband suffers severe left abdominal pain and numbness in left leg when he walks more than 10 steps or so. It is so bad that he gets doubled over at times, and has to literally drag his leg. When he sits down, the pain slowly decreases. He had a lumbar MRI and it was unremarkable. Any ideas? Thank you so much
