HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
The degenerative disc could definitely contribute to the numbness
in your lower limbs.
The discs are composed of two main layers, the outer aspect called the annulus fibrosis
and the inner aspect called nucleus pulposus
. As the disc degenerates the nucleus may protrude and compress and surrounding nerves resulting in discomfort such as numbness.
Treatment would involve physiotherapy
and the use of medications.
You may want to visit your doctor for pain assessment and to start treatment that may help you
I hope this helps
