Low back pain with right thigh numbness and right arm/hand/wrist pain/numbness. Sneezing causes extreme aching pain in both arms. Thoughts on causes?

Spine specialist W/U: It coulb be from disc disease in your neck or high in the back creating some nerve root irritation from the sudden negative intrathoracic pressure created by the sneeze.

Front of right thigh still numb 10 hours after epidural. Everywhere else wore off. Nurse not concerned but should I be?

Not much concern: If numbness is all that you have only in a particular area after an epidural, I am not overly concerned. This is likely due to nerve irritation that occurred at the time the epidural needle and medication was placed. Nerves when irritated or injured are easy to show this by giving a person numbness. That is what happens with funny elbow. Numbness also take the longest to recover but likely will. ...Read more

Pinched nerve: This may be due to a nerve impingement in the groin which occurred from prolonged sitting during your travels.

I have many Lipomas in my arms and my thighs. A few weeks ago, the outer side of my thigh went numb. The front of my thigh is tender to touch. Could a Lipoma have attached itself to a nerve in my leg?

Nerve pain: No. Lipomas do not attach to nerves. The pain that you describe is likely from inflammation of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (meralgia paresthetica). Other alternatives include pain from a nerve sheath tumor (neurofibroma), a pinched nerve in the lumbar spine, and less likely is a hip injury. See a neurologist or neurosurgeon the evaluate the pain. ...Read more
