Hi,
I have terrible cell/internet service so looking up archived info seems to always fail. I have a general question about numbness.....I’m currently waiting to see a spinal doctor due to ruptured disk. Lots of pain etc. however, the numbness seems to be spreading up my thighs now and I’m not getting any response from doctors. I know the holiday interrupts appointments but I don’t know what to do? I’ve been told to stop physical therapy, get right in but now nothing. It’s been almost two weeks since the referral.
Thank you in advance.
Anita

When did it start ?Did your dr tell you it is a symptom of the ruptured disk?
Did you injury yourself or start a new medication, or get a vaccine?
Have you talked to your doctor about MS or Guillian Barre ?I will say a prayer it goes away. Take care .

Diet change has improved my RA. I feel best eating raw veggies and some fruits and avoiding grains, sugars, nightshades, beans and dairy. Sed rate dropped from 65 to 19, but it took over a year.

I have suffered from numbness the whole length of my right leg and buttock for many years. Eventually they found that this was due to a damaged nerve that travels down the leg from the spinal cord. It seems that surgery by a neurosurgeon is the only complete answer. Assuming you can find a surgeon who is willing to do the surgery as it can be risky. Best of luck with it and let us know if you find a surgeon who is willing to do the work so I can tbe next in the cue.

Thank you ValsMum and Frederick, I appreciate the response. I’ve had a long journey with fibromyalgia, possible RA, Rosacea, Excema(?) to be given spondylopathy(?). Then in August I fell on my hip pretty hard. It was a few days at most that it bothered me, then it was over. Or so I thought. So a few weeks ago I got authorization for an MRI and had that done and was told “ruptured disk”. I got a referral right away but the spinal doctor is not making appointments yet. Idk. Anyway, as it gets worse, I get a little afraid of nerve damage etc.

I just found out the spinal surgeon I’ve been waiting to get an appointment with doesn’t take my insurance. No one bothered to tell me.....Grrrr.
