Numbness w/ BM: Not usual. Did it occur during a bowel movement? Straining increases pressure in the body/head /abdomen and that can irritate nerves/ have vascular effect.or position. if does not resolve after BM would seek medical attention immediately to check for vascular /nerve effects. If unrelated to BM could be lyme, positional , rarely MS .Drink fluids 2-3L/d eat fiber . F/U w/doc
