    Hello Dr. Corenman, I have scoliosis degenerative disc diaese in L 3,4,5. My pain is starting to hurt in my left arch and on the inside of my left leg, Does that mean its getting worse?

    Degenerative scoliosis can cause nerve compression and pain that radiates down the leg. Please see the section on the website under “Conditions”; “How to describe symptoms” to give a complete explanation of the history of the disorder.
