im a 32 year old male. i have numbness from the top of my left hip, that circles all the way down to my knee; it fades slowly until it reaches my ankle, then gets stronger again on the sole of my foot. this has slowly been getting worse for the past 4 years. i'm slowly starting to get the same symptoms on my right side as well.
i'm sure these symptoms are connected to occasional spasms i have in the lower part of my back. sometimes it hurt so badly that i have wanted to die...however, i do get relief sometimes from home remedy.

recently, i bent over to pick up a piece of paper, and i got a sensation between my shoulder blades like someone was holding a cigarette lighter to my spine. since then i've had tingling in both hands, but only in my little fingers, and the ring fingers, and the thumb of my left hand.

i dont have any medical insurance, however, i do get daypro for free from the local clinic. i combine that with extended release tylenol...which is about as good as i can do for myself at the moment....

i am trying to get a full time job with benefits, but i'm afraid it will all be classified as pre-existing condition....

any suggestions as a course of action for me to take?????
