Brief Answer:
Nerve compression of S1 both sides.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
According to the report you have S1 nerve root compression on both the sides which is causing pain in the legs. The nerve compression is associated with both sided peroneal nerve affection- the nerve present below the knees is also affected on both the sides.
Such nerve related pains are best treated under the guidance of a neurologist.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.

Brief Answer:
S1 neuropathy will not affect upper thigh.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
This is less likely to cause numbness of the upper thigh. Disc protrusion at the level of lumbar spine can cause it. MRI scan can help to confirm this.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
