It sounds like they diagnosed you with the equivalent of sciatica going down both legs. The part about "resolved" likely implies that you have a diagnosed history of it, but it cleared up. Sometimes it is caused because you had a really bad lumbar muscle spasm/strain, but when the spasm/strain cleared, so did the sciatica.

This could be helpful towards a claim for bilateral radiculopathy, secondary to your lumbar claim. Chances are if you had it once, you might very well end up having it again. They might give you crap about it being diagnosed as resolved.
