hi, I have read your report information,it is revealed that your leg pain has association with changes seen in lumbar region as well as sacral region. however mild degenerative changes seen in cervical vertibrae does have any effect on your complaints. your pain is due to changes in lumbar and saccral must consult some neurophysician along with your report and follow his instruction about pain killers and exercises or any surigcal intervention,if required
