Hi Julie I have the same sort of feeling in my legs (hard to describe) with C-5 C-6 problems so it is similar! Here is what I wrote on another post. Let me know if this seems similar to you.

Here is my MRI:
C-5 C-6 level demonstrates posterior left paracentral disc herniation effacing the ventral CSF space with cord contact, flattening and encroaching on the exiting left C-6 nerve root. There is mild right foraminal narrowing secondary to uncinate process hypertrophy.

C6-C-7 level deomonstrates a posterior left paracentral disc protrusion/subligamentous disc herniation partially effacing the ventral CSF space without cord contact. The neural foramina are patent.

My symptoms:

Pain in the left side of my neck and the left part of my spine with burning at my left shoulder blade especially if I'm sitting, walking or on my feet working for long periods. When it get's really bad the pain locks up my neck. I also get numbness on the left side of my face and left fingers and tingling on the top part of my left hand that has been getting worse since the last injection which was in the facet joints. My neck gets into knots constantly and at night I wake up from the pain. I try to push them out with my thumb but they come right back. I also just got a clicking in the left part of my jaw that I think has something to do with the knots. When I breath sometimes I get tingling that goes from my chest down into my hands. Lately at times I've been feeling spacey when the pain get's bad.

Another post about my leg pain:

As I was reading about what you said about dropping things and leg pain it may connect to other things. I have dropped things on occasion and my left hand does feel differently then my right besides from the tingling and numbness. Another thing I noticed is that I often have leg pain that goes down into both legs. Also feels like a guide wire at the bottom of my spine putting pressure to keep my legs straight out. (Hard to describe exactly.) I also have burning on the outer part of my thighs and top part of my feet. When I go to sleep it is very uncomfortable in my legs and feet sometimes. The other day when I was walking it felt weird like I was walking straight up and higher on my heels or something. (Again hard to describe exactly.) I actually was thinking this had something to do with my lower back and figured I had to address that later after I get through my neck stuff. Could this be connected to my neck pain?
