Numbness in foot

Hi everyone!
I have a quick question... I have told you all about the leg pain a few times but today I noticed that my right foot is kind of numb. Which is odd because the pain doesn't go all the way down to my foot. Is that odd? :/ Maybe something totally unrelated, but I thought I'd run it by you guys. Any ideas at all... Thanks!!! :)

  • HI - I am still awaiting other MRI to be done, and for the NS to look over the MRI of my neck. I have had my right foot go numb, it is very odd - it is as if from the mid point of the foot towards the toes there is nothing. I have had the samething with my left arm. Just so you know your not alone and I have been looking all over as to why.

    I was keeping a log of it all - but started to think that it was consuming me and that I needed to get on with my life - stopped for a week and I am at a point as to where I do nto know what happened when. I suggest writing it down and make a list for your doctor. I am going back to writing it all done.

    Best of luck to you! If you find the cause before I do PM me please
  • but my right foot tingles really bad and feels cold or feels like it is burning sometimes it feels weak, like when I am pressing the gas peddle.

    I have had an MRI on my T spine as well as my cervical spine. Cervical shows some DDD and some mild bulging discs and the T spine shows a couple of mild bulging discs.

    Why does everyone else get to see a nuerologist or some kind of specialist and my doctor refuses to send me to anyone except for a nutristionist, and P/T. He did send my MRI's to a neurosurgeon who said I was not a canidate for surgery so now I am scheduled for an epidural with a anethethisologist (sp).

    If you have been following my saga I did finally get my doctor to release my records to a clinic that only does L&I claims and I am hoping that they will take me seriously and send me to a specialist.

    Sorry, I hijacked your thread. Have you had an MRI yet? Something in your spine could be pressing on the nerve that goes to your leg. If you have not had an MRI I would suggest you start there.
