I am a 28 y/o male who gets numbness in legs when sitting or laying down. The problem goes away as soon as I stand up. However, my leg has been aching and feeling "dead" lately. I went to the doctor and had an MRI on my back but it came back normal. I also had a nerve test, which was normal, an EKG which was normal and all blood work was normal. I have had a doppler on both legs which was fine as well.

I ignored the numbness at first but the reason I went to the doctor was I was tingling all over my body. The tingling has gone away since going to the doctor. I don't know what is going on but it is getting frustrating. I do find myself worrying all the time about money and being here for my two-year old son. I'm thinking I might have a pinched nerve or compression issue and stress/anxiety that may be leading to the other problems. Any help would be appreciated.
