About a week ago a spot on my leg went numb and I have no idea what is causing it. Everyone keeps saying it's probably a nerve, but I don't know. I haven't been to the doctor yet because I was waiting to see if it was temporary and would go away, but it hasn't so far.
It's on my left thigh. Maybe about an 8 inch circle. There is no "pins and needles" sensation. Or any kind of tingling or anything. I'm on my feet all day for my job so I don't know if that has anything to do with it. I also just moved into a new apartment and we moved everything ourselves, but the numbness didn't start until about a week after we moved.
My mom has experianced the same kind of numbness since she had her gallbladder removed about a year ago.
and my best friend had a ruptured disc in her back and she experianced a similar sensation.
I keep getting so many different suggestions of what it could be that i don't know what to think.
I am planning on going to the doctor tomorrow if I can get an appointment, but in the meantime does anyone have any ideas of what could be going on with me?
I'm on 22 years old. I'm pretty active. I feel like I'm too young to be having back or nerve problems.
