Avatar n tn They said it was sciatica that caused the leg pain and numbness and tingling. I just got my second steroid injection and the pain is much better though I still have a lot of numbness and tingling in my lower legs and foot. In fact, my other leg and one arm has been tingling and becoming numb since Monday. Best bet is to go see your doctor. Good luck.

Avatar m tn It appears that your symptoms could be due to injury to a nerve, pressure on spinal or peripheral nerves (neuropathy), vitamin deficiency, lack of blood supply due to cholesterol plaque from atherosclerosis in the extremities, viral infection and use of certain medications. In addition, atherosclerosis can also cause pain, numbness, and tingling while walking and they can also reduce blood supply and lead to numbness.
Avatar n tn i woke one morning and had no feeling when using the bathroom, a slight tingling in my lower right leg, and some sort of spasming going on in my left leg. i thought nothing of it because all of the symptoms basically went away. around 2 hours later my right leg went numb. i went to the emergency room. i was diagnosed with a "bone spur" on c5/c6 and sent home w/ meds.
Avatar n tn What I feel in my leg and feet are tingling with pain. This pain comes and goes but seems to come more at night and at bedtime where I am unable to get a good nights sleep because I am constantly twisting and turning. I am not capable of sitting for long periods of time and am finding that I need to lie down 50% of time during the day. It seems that all I can do is focus on this feeling, when I sit overtime my legs and feet start tingling and have a feeling of numbness.
Avatar f tn I had surgery on my leg in dec. cuz I had twisted my knee late last summer and by oct part of my foot was numb but the tingling was from the side of my knee down to my whole foot. went to an ortho doc that sed it was my back (i have DDD) so had injection, "this will help with the back pain", told him I don't have any back pain, my leg is tingling and my feet hurt all the time and the top of my left foot is numb.
Avatar f tn It sounds like sciatica from from you lumbar region. The term sciatica describes the symptoms of leg pain and possibly tingling, numbness or weakness that originates in the low back and travels through the buttock and down the large sciatic nerve in the back of the leg. You most likely have a pinched nerve. The reason I recognize that is because I am dealing with it in my left leg. More on this site: http://www.spine-health.
Avatar n tn I had hypothalamic lacunar stroke on 01/09/09 with subsequent thalamic pain syndrome on my right side arm/hand & leg/foot/toes. Constant tingling/burning/tightness/numbness & cold my entire right side of body. After stroke, my doctor immediately put me on 75 mg Plavix same day.

Avatar m tn Meralgia paresthetica is a condition characterized by tingling, numbness and burning pain in the outer part of your thigh. The cause of meralgia paresthetica is compression of the nerve that supplies sensation to the skin surface of your upper leg. Tight clothing, obesity or weight gain are common causes of meralgia paresthetica. However, meralgia paresthetica can also be due to local trauma or from a disease, such as diabetes.

Avatar n tn Hi, Apart from neuropathy , i strongly doubt that there might be a nerve impingement issue at spine. This causes numbness, tingling and symptoms radiate to one leg. Red flags are loss control over bowel and bladder. I would suggest you consult a doctor at your earliest convinience. Hope it helps.
Avatar m tn Common symptoms of prolapsed disc could be paralysis of muscles, pain radiating to the arms or legs, leg pain and numbness, tingling, or weakness. Warning symptoms can include loss of control of the bladder function, numbness/pain at genital areas, paralysis & spasticity of both the legs. In addition, if you are suffering continuous weakness and notice reduced strength of muscle bulk in leg, please arrange an appointment with a neurologist right away.
Avatar n tn Hello all. I was playing football Sunday and although I didn't experience any injury while playing, I felt tightness later that night. I always stretch before and after. The next morning when I woke up I noticed some clicking behind my knee right above my calf. It's right in the center. Now a few days later, I'm feeling a lot of calf numbness and tingling. It's been tough falling asleep because of this. I've had previous problems with this leg before...

Few persons also face generalized body weakness and numbness due to other nerve irritation on back. If you suffer continuous weakness and notice reduced strength of muscle bulk in both the legs, please arrange an appointment with a neurologist right away who will evaluate the possibilities here.
Avatar n tn Hi there. These tingling, pain and numbness sensations are in the lower limbs, lumbar spine needs to be investigated clinically and with an MRI spine to check the intervertebral spinal disc which could be impinging on an exiting nerve root or a bony spur irritating the nerves and hence the symptoms. An MRI spine shall reveal most of the disc related pathologies, which could be causing the deficit.
Avatar f tn Hi there. The various causes of these tingling and numbness in leg could be vitamin B12 deficiency, hypothyroidism, cervical disc prolapsed or degeneration, bony spurs pressing nerve roots etc. You could be suffering from a disc issue at the back. Consult a neurologist for investigation of your spine and an MRI spine is warranted to check the lesions. This would require painkillers or NSAIDS, physical therapy, exercise, epidural steroid injection and lastly a decompressive surgery of spine.

Avatar n tn I have been having problems with my foot and my leg, at first I thought it was a bone spur so I started using inserts in my shoes and bought better shoes, but now I sometimes have numbness in my toes and my leg alternates betweens being cramped to feeling heavy, and I sometimes have a pain in my foot even when I'm not standing on it. I have sleep apnea and use a c-pap my doctor feels I have had it since I was born and I'm currentley 45 yrs old and have been using the c-pap for 5 yrs.
Avatar m tn Anybody else experience this ? Have developed a constant tingling, numbness, sharp stabbing pain in the upper left leg. Have tried many different stretching exercises.
Avatar n tn I have also been experiencing tingling in the left forarm expanding down my arm into the palm of my hand with numbness in my finger tips. i have also experienced numbness in my left leg which i didnt relate to my injury until after i recieved a fluoroscopically guided cervical epidural steroid injection. the pain in my arm and shoulder is sharp at times,hot and aching.
Avatar m tn Thanks for the thoughts. I might consider a physio's advice rather than my GP ( or a more patient GP!). I've been tested for diabetes (nothing), and not a smoker. There is a history of back pain which until reading recently I've always considered disassociated with the sharp pain and leg numbness since. Thanks again for your thoughts.

Avatar n tn Pain and numbness now goes down into my left leg and I experience strange tingling in my left foot. Periodically, I even feel some twitching and prickliness on the left side of my face. Many days I just cry from frustration. Over the years i have had innumerable PT visits, chiro, pilates, accupuncture, mri's, nerve conduction tests, etc. The diagnosis I have repeatedly rec'd over the years is neck/shoulder strain.
