Numbness : In young patients, demyelinating disorders is always a consideration. Other autoimmune disorders, or vitamin deficiencies may need to be excluded. Check with your physician for proper history and physical examination. This is the best way for an accurate diagnosis and treatment. Consider consultation with a neurologist. Hope you feel better soon.
