I have had off/on lower back pains for over 15 years, probably from mechanical stress, and I have on occasion felt numbness in my leg during these periods of pain. But recently I have not have any back pain.
Last week my left thigh went completely numb and seems to still be the same, or maybe the numb area is even getting larger. Its numb like pins and needles numb when I rub it, but otherwise I hardly notice it.
I have not talked to a Dr., but am considering it now since its not going away. I just wonder what this could be, if its related to my back problems or maybe something else. I have heard that diabetis can cause a similar symptom.
I know from experience that Drs going in and messing with stuff their not sure of generally makes one worse off. But if I think it could be something more serious, I would definately have it checked out.
