HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

The nerves that supply the lower aspect of the body come out from the spinal cord in the lumbar region.

Degenerative joint disease of the spine can cause compression of these nerves.

This compression can result in abnormal sensations such as the numbness that you are experiencing. It can also cause pain as well.

I hope this helps
