Brief Answer:
Could be due to pinched nerve or nutritional deficiencies.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ma am,
Thanks for your query.
I appreciate your concern.

Other possible causes are pinched nerve in the lower spine or nutritional deficiencies due to vitamin B12, Calcium, etc.

I would advice you to consult a doctor for proper evaluation, you may need some routine blood tests like fasting blood glucose, thyroid function tests, vitamin B12 level and estimation of calcium and other electrolytes.

Meanwhile, you may start taking Vitamin B12 tablets (mecobalmine) or Injection hydroxycobalmine. Take Vitamine B12 rich diet like meat, eggs, cereals, continue daily walking.

Hope these suggestions could be useful in getting relief from your present symptoms.

Wishing you good health.
