It sounds like it could be nerve compression in your cervical spine. Even though the cervical spine is your neck, you can get nerve pain in your legs from it as well.

It also could be both a cervical and a low lumbar spine problem.

You should see a spine specialist for an complete evaluation, either an orthopedic surgeon that specializes in spines or a neurosurgeon that specializes in spines only.

Good luck
