Hi, Usually not related. more details necessary. Any further queries, happy to help again.

Hi Emily! Good morning. I am Dr Shareef answering your query. Severe pain radiating down your legs points to some kind of pressure on the nerves when these come out from the spinal canal. I would advise you to get your self reviewed by your orthopedic surgeon who might advise you for an MRI to know the exact position. Till then you could go for some anti inflammatory drug for symptomatic relief.
