See Neurologist: You need to pursue this further with a neurologist ( brain and nerve specialist ). You may well need an MRI of your brain and spinal cord if not already done. A migraine could do what is happening to you but at your age it would be wise to pursue further. If you can't feel your leg go back to the emergency room. Ask questions of the doctors. If thihgs are not right pursue until they are. ...Read more

I have pain in upper knee of left leg only  from last 3 days. At first it was mild  but from day 3 i could  hardly bent  my knee&cant put weight on it?

Can be many things: Without a significant trauma, there are several other things to consider. A meniscus tear can cause this type of pain, a stress fracture can make weight bearing painful, gout can cause severe pain and swelling, warmth and difficulty bending and an infection can do the same along with fever, chills and lethargy. I would recommend going to see an orthopaedic surgeon and getting evaluation. ...Read more

Vibrating in left foot. I have spondylosis and a bulging disc. Pain from my back goes down my left leg.somedays I cant walk or move?

I'm not sure what: the question is. The starting point would be bed rest for a couple of days then physical therapy. If EMG confirms muscle loss in the leg you should consider surgery. I would start the therapy before surgery however to improve your chance of a good outcome. ...Read more
