Numb sensation in right leg. History of lower back problem. Cause for numbness?

Hi, I have been observing a numb sensation on the right side of my legs and arms which sometimes extends to the right side of my face. I have observed that with exercise it tends to reduce a bit. I had a lower back problem few years ago, which tends to resurface once in a while everyyear. I would like to know if the cause of the numbness and advise on which test I should go for. Thank you very much.
