Foot/ leg HAS to twist out to walk


My foot seems to twist to almost 90 degree angle when I walk and my leg is also twisting outward to walk?? I dont know why it is doing this. I do have back issues. Can this twisting of my left leg and foot be caused from nerve issues?

I have sciatica and thigh pain and calf weakness which is making it hard to walk. I have huge pain in my calf when i put my weight on my left leg. I also have numbness on the right underside of my left foot from heal to big toe. I am scheduled to see surgeon on April 6th for a surger date for discectomy laminectomy on my l5- s1. Here is the info on that section of my back:

l5-s-1 large central disc extrusion which extends inferior to the disk for a distance of approx. 1.2 cm and extends posteriorly for a distance of 1.5 cm. There is significant narrowing of the thecal sac. The transluminal diameter of the thecal sac at this level has been reduced by 50 percent

Has anyone else had a twisting leg? It seems from the knee down my leg/ foot just doesnt want to work right. Any ideas? Can this twisting of my left leg and foot be caused from nerve issues?
