What could be the cause of a pain w/numbness in the left pelvic (back to front pubic) area w/ stabbing pain where torso meets thigh?
Back lesion as cause:
With a pinched nerve supplying that area of the body, due to arthritis, slip disk, injury or space occupying lesions in the spine. Another common problem is meralgia paraesthetica, where a nerve to the front & side of the thigh gets trapped under a tight ligament against the iliac bone(pelvis). The symptoms you mentioned are most likely due to it.
See your orthopod for proper DX and treatment. ...Read more

Sacroiliitis?: I see a lot of sacroiliitis - an inflammation of a joint in the pelvis - that often feels like a pain in the upper buttock, and can even sometimes be accompanied by sciatica - a shooting or burning pain in the back of the thigh. It can absolutely be caused by such a fall. Anti-inflammatory we may help (ibuprofen or naproxen) but take with food. Good luck! ...Read more

Horse fall 6 mo ago. Hip pain and numb from pubic bone to tail bone. Normal MRI and xray. Now area is smaller but still numb and painful. Idk what to do.
Most likely soft ti-: Ssue contusional injuries from the fall with superficial neuritis (of the nerves in and just below the skin). These get better slowly and sometimes can take up to 2 years to completely resolve. So your getting better slowly is a good sign. Hang in there, it should improve. Rarely there may be some residual numbness but the majority would subside. ...Read more
I applied 0.5 hydrocortisone cream to my to the head of penis, pubic area and scrotum and now the head of penis and scrotum feels somewhat numb. Help?
0.5% Hydrocortisone is really too weak since even 1% is usually not potent enough. If the problem is persistent, you need to stop using it or perhaps try switching to an ointment. See a doctor if the problem fails to resolve or the numbness lasts more than a couple of day.
Make sure that the cream does not have a local anesthetic mixed with it. ...Read more
Mucocele removed 5 mnths ago and recently the area that it was in is giving me a slight tingly irritating feelin. Also i feel numbness on lipremedies?
Oral surgery: To remove the lesion can injure nerves in the area. The tingling & irritating feeling is described as paraesthesia, or altered sensation. The lip numbness is related. These damaged nerves can regenerate with time, but after 5 months the chances are minimal. There are some techniques to assist with regeneration.

I have numbness when i bend my back backwards on the mid area under ribcage on my back and it goes around to front of ribcage.
Thoracic disc: A symptomatic thoracic disc rupture is rare but so are your symptoms. The only other common thing I can think of is early shingles. The later would quickly show a painful red blistered rash. The disc, at this point is only annoying an should stay that way. An MRI would diagnose the rupture or show even rarer lesions even less likely at your age. ...Read more

Hi i sometimes have a poking sensation in my right kidney area . I also feel the numbness in that area. Wat could be the reason?
I have numbness and tingling in my whole left side of body (under investigation) but why are these areas more painful to touch?
Why indeed: Whatever is causing the numbness & tingling is also causing the painful sensation. The sense of touch is multimodality & of mind-mangling complexity. When you say the areas are "more painful," do you mean allodynia, hyperpathia, dysesthesia or hyperalgesia? (The idea is now for you to look up those terms and try to determine which 1 (or more) applies to you.) ...Read more
I have a numbness and a slight burning sensation on my quadricept area. I don't know if I need to get it looked at or if it will just go away.
Dunno either but ...: You are with yourself every day and so you can easily monitor the time course of your symptoms. If things are getting better then I would just pursue a course of watchful waiting. If you believe things are getting worse then by all means do come in for a further evaluation. ...Read more
