Hi Misty, Have you had an recent MRI of your neck? I have daily leg problems/pains due to my c5-c6 cord compression..Is your herniated/deteriorated disc compressing your cord? If so, my guess is that could very well be the reason for your leg pain.

Before my herniated disc started compressing my cord my pain was localized in the neck and arm...since i had an injury that caused my herniated disc to compress the cord, i have had pain in virtually every part of my body, including legs...My neuro says neck cord compression can cause leg problems...

Good luck and let me know!
