Brief Answer:
Due to vit B12 deficiency or nerve compression.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

From your description, your symptoms seems to be due to vit B12 deficiency or nerve compression at lower spine.

I suggest you to get your vit B12 level and MRI of spine done.

You can take vit B12 supplementation after consulting your doctor.

You can share your reports with me or with your doctor.

Wishing you good health.

Warm regards.
