Yes you should go for a check up without waiting because immidiate treatment is warrented for the above symptoms.However these symptoms are not related to spinal stenosis.

Due to past trauma to spine it seems you had spinal cord injury with residual neurological deficit. This residual neurological deficit does not get cured by any medical treatment however stem cell research has shown encouraging results in such cases
