I am 34 years old. I have had lower back problem for a few years, but nothing major. About a year ago I noticed my left leg was numb and in pain, along with my left arm on occasion. I went to a chiropractor, but this helped only a little. The numbness and pain began to increase on my left side along with feelings of fatigue. I went to my MD who did blood work. It came back okay except for low calcium. I had an MRI done on my lower back around 6 months ago. I was told I had a bulging disc which was causing the lower back pain and was probably causing a pinched nerve. Since this time things have not improved. My left arm, left side of my neck, left pinky finger, left hip, and left leg are in constant pain and/or numb. I also am feeling very fatigued. I was blaming my tiredness on working, but since school has let out for the summer I am still tired if not more so than when I was teaching. Could all of this be caused by a pinched nerve? Is there a possibility that it could be something else?
