Nerve compression: This time with your symptoms it is likely to be addressed as nerve compression is suggested. Start with your main doc who has been following for the last few years. He or she will be in best position to further coordinate and save you time in the process. Alternatively an urgent care will likely address it as well, if not being established with any physician at this time.
