I had neurofibromatosis type ii, i feel numbness right above knee ocationally one day after cycling , could it be ligament tore?I had muscleache there

NF II: Neurofibromatosis type 2 can have peripheral fibromas, but i would more likely expect a musculo-skeletal injury or nerve compression injury during cycling. For your nf, an annual evaluation is warranted. For the numbness of your knee, i would evaluate any compression at the hip.

Absolutely: Could be a pinched nerve. Could be adjustment to this new physical activity. I would get checked out if the numbness persists after a week.
