im no dr but my guess is you need some treatment either conservative like physical therapy and or injections. if that doesnt work you may need surgical intervention. you need to see an orthopedic or neuro surgeon spine specialist. he/she will probably order an mri. the surgeon will compare your symptoms to the test to determine diagnosis and treatment plan. i think doing nothing will just make it worse. you have arthritic changes that have created bone spurs that are rubbing on the spinal nerves. best of luck to you in getting it fixed.....pete
