For the last 6 months or so i have had this numbness in my right upper thigh, right above my knee. At first it didnt bother me, but now the numbness last all day and its hard for me to sleep at night. Last night i must have rolled over on my right side and i woke up because i felt like something was stabbing me in my leg. Im really starting to be scared about it. Im only 21 and i mentioned it to my doc when it first started and he told me that if i lost some weight it might would help. guess what? IT didnt help! i really dont know what to do. my mom has MS and she has really bad problems with her legs, but i dont know if it they are the same problems. Ive never broken a leg just my arm. never had any kind of head or back injury. so i have no clue what this could be linked to. PLEASE any info on this matter would be helpful! I am a student and a server so i have no insurance. i just really dont know what to do. i thought at first it would just go away but its not. Its just getting worse! PLEASE HELP
