Re: neurologic deficit
It would be to your benefit to have a neurologic evaluation to see what deficits you have, and then you might need further tests, MRI, EMG, etc. I had lumbar spinal stenosis that caused me to have a weak left leg, and also a balance problem. That led to an injury from a fall that resulted in spinal cord compression in my neck. You may have a nerve being compressed, and there might be a procedure that can help you. You won't know until you get further tests.
