Hi, recently I started having numbing in my legs...sometimes it's a light tingling and other times it's pins and needles. Generally when my leg goes numb its from the buttocks down to my foot. My doctor had sent me for an MRI in which nothing showed up so she hasn't chose to push any further. I'm very frustrated as I am only 23 years old and it doesn't matter what I am doing, I can be sitting, walking, standing, dancing, or driving it's not one particular thing that sets it off. I have had back problems for years now, but not like this. Any ideas as to what might be causing the numbness would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

  • Hi, this could be a pinched nerve in the spine. Have you been to a chiropractor?

  • I see a chiropractor on a regular basis. My doctor also thought that they would find a pinched nerve but the MRI showed nothing:confused: Is there a possibility that although the MRI didn't show anything that I still could have a pinched nerve?
