Oh my aching. ......: When you hit anything, especially at 50 mph, your car isn't the only thing going to absorb impact. The collision impact will also be absorbed through the floorboard into your legs. This puts an abnormally high amount of stress to the supportive soft tissue structures of the legs and feet. Consequently the muscles, tendons, ligament and bones will be in a world of hurt for some time.See 1 more doctor answer
I am having numbness in my left leg and arm. I was in a major car accident about a year ago. Could they be related?

If they started just after your accident, there is a good chance they are related. If they started recently, it is not likely they are related to the accident one year ago. Numbness covering a large area is an important symptom that should be checked out fast.See 1 more doctor answer
