Thank you for posting your query.
You require detailed evaluation by a neurologist to diagnose the underlying reasons. The diagnosis could be multiple sclerosis, however, MRI of brain and spinal cord would be required to further clarify the diagnosis.
Pinched nerve in the back could explain the leg pain and numbness but not the numbness on the face.
Please get back if you require any additional information.
