Leg Is Numb From Fall 2 Years Ago
No worries: You may have compressed the nerves during the impact or they are being compressed by the hematoma - under the skin bruise that developed as a result of the fall. No worries. It will get better even without doing anything. ...Read more
I injured my knee 2 years ago but recently only half/part of my knee falls asleep. What causes that? Is it normal?
Nerve: It appears that you also injured some superficial nerves which can cause patchy numbness. A neurologist could pinpoint the cause of this sensory symptom for you. Of course if the whole leg is affected the knee injury may not have been the cause but the neurologist will diagnose the problem in that case. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had a bruise 2 months ago, caused by falling down the stairs. It was painful, and there was numbness and swelling. Now the numbness is still there.
Recovery slow/never?: Once peripheral nerve fibers (cell bodies at/in spinal cord) are damaged/interrupted, they usually attempt to regrow, slowly, maximum rate typically about 1 mm/day. However, if tissue disruption has blocked original path, they may not/never regrow fully. Without the previous fibers & changed sensory signals to your spinal cord & brain, a sense of numbness may persist, sometimes permanently. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

There : There isn't a whole lot of medical knowledge on stingray injuries, and even less on the long-term effect, years later. I'm not surprised you have not found anyone who feels qualified in the diagnosis and treatment of your daughter's problem. Very few doctors get much experience with this sort of thing. Before i try to give you some insight into what might be going on here, let me first qualify my answer by saying I have never personally seen anyone with a stingray injury, so my thoughts are educated guesses, but i hope they will help somewhat. There are a few possibilities going on with your daughter's foot. There might still be a small piece of a barb still in her foot. This very well might not show up on x-ray, and you might need an MRI with very small cuts (2 mm) to see this. Needless to say, if a piece of a barb is still inside, it needs to come out. The soft tissue infection that ensued could have found its way to bone, giving your daughter a bone infection. This could have occurred if the antibiotics were stopped prematurely, as you mentioned she was only taking antibiotics for 5 days and they had to be stopped. An MRI would also show if the bone is infected. Finally, the injury itself could have injured a nerve, leaving her with a chronic neuritis, or inflammation of the injured nerve. A series of local anesthesia injections to the nerve may help to reduce the neuritis, and this can be combined with a little steroid to reduce the inflammation. There was an interesting article on stingray injuries written by a podiatrist in texas, al kline, dpm. I'm attaching the link. Considering how few doctors have knowledge of these kinds of injuries, it might not be that ridiculous an idea to take a trip to texas from arizona to see someone who has knowledge and experience in this kind of injury. Good luck. I wish i were able to give you a better answer. I hope your daughter feels better. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Has stage 2 Parkinson disease. Fell from sofa 2 weeks ago and hence has trouble walking. Experienced severe pain in leg today. Cant walk since then.
Let's get it checked: Severe pain that develops after an injury event two weeks ago may herald progression of a nondisplaced fracture.

Rear ended 2 months ago, shoulder fracture (not broken). A week ago a jump caused shoulder pain. Now tingling in arms and legs. Because of the injury?
Yes, it is possible: That the recent trauma is the cause of the nerve impingement. Nerve impingement can be caused by being sandwiched between two spinal bones, pressed by a bulging disc or encroached upon by bony overgrowth. Rec.: see an interventional pain management specialist for further investigation. ...Read more
