Numb Leg After Crystal Meth
Long term alcohol: Use can lead to neuropathy. While this is a possible cause of your numbness, there can be others, including injuries or trapped nerves in neck, wrist, or elbow. Talk to your doctor to get vit b and Folic Acid levels on you to see if these could be a cause of your neuropathy. If those are normal, discuss other causes. Most importantly, talk to them about solutions to using too much alcohol. ...Read more

I have quit crystal meth for 3 days and slept the whole time now my legs are numb but no pain...why?
Congratulations: Firstly, congratulations. Crystal meth is a very very nasty drug that I see in my patients far too often here in Ft. Lauderdale. Sleeping long periods is not uncommon after stopping the amphetamine. Nerve damage can occur..both at a central and peripheral level. I am going to guess that your issue was the way you were sleeping for the past 72 hours. If this doesn't resolve..see you PCP. ...Read more
Sprained ankle last month ER ruled out fracture going on 6 weeks swelling not going down red patches on leg foot and leg numb up to butt cheek worried
Ankle injury: With ankle injuries, bones are only one level of concern. We also have to worry about the ligaments which are most commonly injured during an ankle sprain and will not show up on plain film x-rays. I would recommend that you immobilize the limb as much as possible and consult with your closest podiatrist. An MRI of the best in order to rule out soft tissue injuries. Good luck! ...Read more

Certain : Certain local anesthetics can have a duration of action of 6 to 8 hours depending on the site of injection. These long acting anesthetics are routinely used in third molar surgery to provide extended relief from surgical pain. If the anesthesia remains the morning after the surgery it may indicate that the nerve in the area may have been disturbed. This is a known consequence associated with the removal of the lower third molars and can result from stretching, compressing or tearing of the nerve. Stretching and compression injuries have better prognosis for recovery, though it may take several months for full sensation to return. Thought injuries typically do not require further treatment, just monitoring. Injuries that involve transection of the nerve can be permanent. It is these types of injuries that may require further surgical treatment. No matter the cause, prolonged anesthesia, greater than a day, require follow-up by the treating surgeon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Sat on leg for 2hrs, stood up entire leg numb w foot very swollen red, relieved in 15 minutes now centralzed back pain 1hr. Blood clot? Was active today
Doubt blood clot: Unless you were almost motionless for those 2 hours (and even then), without knowing if you have any other risk factors (smoking, etc), i'd say it's extremely unlikely that you'd develop a clot that quickly. You were probably sitting in a position compressing some blood vessels and nerves somewhere and getting up eventually relieved that. Back pain also probably from how you were sitting. ...Read more

My left ear keeps going numb for a second. Sometimes when it happens my cheek goes numb too. Noticed physical activity takes the numbness away. Why?
Doctor can evaluate: Numbness of an ear usually means the skin sensation of the earlobe and cheek have decreased. An ENT doctor or a neurologist can evaluate to see if something is bothering the sensory nerve to those areas on the head. Not sure why physical activity changes things, but activity does change blood flow. Of course, there are hundreds of types of physical activity, so the doctor will ask for details. ...Read more
