Brief Answer:
You need a thorough neurological evaluation

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have very carefully gone through the problems mentioned. There are a couple of probabilities that I am considering:
* Spondylosis - The spinal nerves exit from either side of the vertebral column. If the exit passages get narrowed due to spondylosis, the mentioned problems could result.
* Multiple Sclerosis - The nerve cells have an insulation of myelin which is required for a smooth conduction of the nerve impulses. Multiple sclerosis is a demyelinating disease where this insulation is affected and therefore the nerves can no longer work properly.

Please visit a neurologist and get yourself evaluated. The second thing to do is to get an orthopedic opinion. Physical therapy can be helpful.
