Complete numbness/top of & foot & lower leg
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 also exercise quite a bit and started running on a regular basis about 3 months ago. Could that have anything to do with it. Anyway, 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.
