I have the same symptoms in my left leg and now I have it in the right leg. I would stand or walk around and all of a sudden, BOOM: my legs have given out and I am on the floor. My MRI showed disc herniation and paracentral (both sides) protrusion and desiccation (dehydration) on L5-S1. I have nerve damage in both legs and will have a lumbar fusion, discectomy and decompression surgery on 12/09/09. My neurosurgeon does not want to put it off because he does not want the nerve damage to become permanent. I'm 34 yrs old with a baby and a pre-teen. I would suggest you really go and see a doctor about this and maybe get an MRI. It could just be sciatica, you never know. My problems crept up on me slowly over 5 years. I used to have a job that required a lot of sitting for long periods of time. Hope this helps.
