Numbness : It sounds like a nerve problem. I wonder if your use of the scissors caused it. It can be a nerve problem in the neck, arms, or wrist.

Is exforge (amlodipine and valsartan) safe for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding?

Depends: This is another combination drug. It is probably safe in breastfeeding although we have no clear studies to say so. One of the medications though has been shown to cause renal and heart problems when taken in the second and third trimesters. We don't recommend taking while pregnant. If you are on this med and get pregnant, call your doctor right away but don't come off of it until they say so.

Likely Miscarriage: When a fetal pole and heart beat are not seen on early ultrasound, the ultrasound is usually repeated in one to two weeks. Given your bleeding, it is probable that you are experiencing a misscarriage. If you bleeding becomes more than 1 pad an hour or you have increasing pain, you should call your physician immediately.

Is surgery helpful for sciatic nerve damage. Burning in leg, numbness, tingling & stumbling?

Yes: You describe symptoms of radiculopathy which is when a nerve malfunctions due to some type of pressure on the nerve.
You should see your family md for evaluation and they can do an MRI for evaluation. Of course, before surgery, you should try physical therapy and epidural steroid injections if possible.
