Complete numbness/lower leg & foot

(3 discussions)

Dr., I have complete numbness on the outside of my lower right leg and the complete top of my foot and toes (except the 5th, little, toe). This is the 6th day. I’ve used Vioxx, ice packs and the hot tub. Nothing works.
I’ve had no injury I can remember. BUT, I had weight loss surgery about ten months ago and have lost 170 lbs (now I’m 5’9″ and 164 lbs) I’ve been crossing my legs alot (like never before) and I’ve noticed the numbness starts from the point where the outside of my right calf rests against my left knee while crossed over the left knee. I work insane hours and would just like to know if you think I need to see a chiropractor, wait it out a while, or just go staright to the ER! haha – Anyway, I would appreciate a response… Thank you in advance.

    : It started about 3 months ago in my left leg. My knee popped and I did have knee surgery on that knee 5 years ago. The pain would travel down and my ankle would swell along with the ball of my foot, so I went to my G.P. last week and have an appointment set up for this week for an MRI on my knee, but over the weekend I noticed my left foot and left hand began to go numb, so am not sure if it has anything to do with my knee at all. Also have had a very bad headache for a week,and an unusually long mestral cycle (15 days). Any advise would be appreciated.
