Hello, I am sorry if this has already been discussed, but I could not find anything and I am quite worried, so I really want to ask for some advice..
I have had a minor numbness in the big toe of my right foot for quite some time, but recently (possibly due to excessive pressure on back from working with used cars and working out in the gym) it escalated and numbness spread to a larger area of the right foot (like 3cm upwards from the big toe) and the right knee (like 5cm downwards starting from the knee). Today I did some physical work involving cleaning the car lot from snow, and again maybe a little too much back pressure was involved and today I also have some light numbness in left big toe. Also, when I sit for long periods of time, I often feel "pins and needles" on my back.
The numbness in all those areas basically feels like the feeling you get in the mouth when you go to the dentist and he puts your gums to sleep, and then after you go home they gradually regain sense, and in my right big toe I have maybe about 40% of the sensations I used to have, in the knee and left toe maybe 75%. I am a 20 year old male, tall and relatively skinny.
I have already visited many doctors, and the magnetic resonance didnt find any problems in the nerves. Has anyone ever had to deal with something like that? How worried should I be?
If anyone has anything, anything to share, I would be extremely thankful.
