Detailed Answer:
Hi,

The description of pain and the weakness all points towards a pinched nerve. I would like to know since when you been having this type of pain and weakness. Can you describe how it developed - did it begin abruptly (overnight) or was it something that progressed gradually.

Have you been to a doctor? If yes, did you undergo any kind of test - blood or radiological (xray/scans)

I await your reply..
