Thank you for posting your query.

Your symptoms are new onset and hence require evaluation. It is possible that some new nerves or a part of spinal cord has got compressed, resulting in leg weakness.

You should consult a neuro specialist and get an MRI of spine done for appropriate diagnosis.

You would recover with early treatment and physiotherapy.

Wishing you good health,
