I have numbness on my lower back and abdomen and my skin is crawling. I'm on adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) could that be causing these sensations?

I have numbness on my lower back and abdomen and my skin is crawling. I'm on adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) could that be causing these sensations?

Not usually: Numbness and skin crawling sensations are not likely to be caused by Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and aren't listed as a side effect. But that doesn't mean this side effect is impossible. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) can increase anxiety in some patients which could result in abnormal skin sensations. More often than not, "skin crawling" sensation is anxiety/stress related. The same for the numbness in abdomen and back. Call your Dr. ...Read more

The nerves supplying the left lower quadrant come from the lower thoracic spinal roots, i.e. From the spinal roots at the lower end of the rib-cage. How long is "a long time"? Has your doctor examined you? What does (s)he say? ...Read more

If you had a laparoscopic hernia repair, that should be minimal. Open hernia repairs are associated with some incidence of numbness on the inside of the thigh and scrotum.
