Can Baker's cyst and disc deterioration cause intermittent numbness of the feet?
I have been diagnosed with a "Bakers cyst" behind the right knee and have neuropathy in the right foot for which I did physical therapy to restore sufficient feeling in the foot to drive a car. An MRI of the lower spine about a year ago after a slip on ice in February 2017 showed typical disc deterioration for a man of my age and height - 6' 5"
Any thoughts on what may be going on will be appreciated. I will be 87 this coming August.

Due to nerve compression.
I have gone through your query and health concern,this is due to nerve compression in spine,so you can take methylcobalamine 1500mg onces daily for one month you will get relief.
Hope I have answered your query.
