A 52-year-old physically active man with a medical history of coronary artery disease, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia presented with numbness and tingling in the legs. His symptoms were intermittent initially, triggered by running or playing soccer and relieved by rest. Symptoms progressed during 1 year. The numbness became more constant, and he developed leg pain radiating from the popliteal fossa to the heel bilaterally (pain was more severe in the left leg compared with the right leg). Recently, he had noted some constipation as well as difficulty in initiating urination.
