Symptoms of Lumbar Stenosis




Back pain, sciatica (burning pain going into buttocks and down into legs), numbness, tingling, cramping, or weakness in legs, loss of sensation in feet, and foot drop are some symptoms of lumbar stenosis.

Dr. Georgiy Brusovanik, Spine Surgeon with Baptist Health South Florida, says numbness, tingling, cramping, and weakness are neurological symptoms. It means nerves come from the brain, they go through the spine out into the legs and if those nerves are compressed, the pain is going to happen.
