Have you had a lumber MRI taken? If nerves are affected in the lower back- you can have symptoms in the lower legs and extremities. For example the sciatic nerve comes from the lower back area, and it follows a path on your leg and down to your toes. Have you experienced any weakness in the lower legs / ankle / feet? My recommendation would be to get an evaluation of the of the lower back.
