  • Hi I have three tumors in the spine. one is in T10 another in L1 and L2 can these tumors give me numbness in the arms as well as the legs? can anyone give me the answer to this? Thankyou so much.:)Hi Have you gone to see a Dr. specializing in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, in order to check you out? I can tell you that:L3, L4 and L5 discs can and will give you sharp pain on the out-side of your legs, and not on the inside of your legs, from your hips down to your toes! "numbness only if the tumors are pressing on theis dicss and the nerve root an each side of the dics."I can also tell you that:You can have numbness do to L3, L4, L5 and S1-disc, only if they are pressing/pinching on the nerve root, then you will have numbness and some Burning it would start from your Hip going down to your knees."You should try Water Therapy it's great for the lower body and it dose help.As for T10:It should not give you pain in your arms as the nerve roots for the arms start from around T5. T10 should be more on your waist as you bend side to side.If by chance you have a MRI have them looked at again by another Dr. OR A NEW RADIOLOGY AS THEY DO OVER LOOK THINGS.The radiology did over look an Infection sac behind my dicss 3 of them. And make sure you don't have an infection behind the tummors as the MRI could have been mised read, good luck to you
