I hurt my left heel and ever since, I have had numbness and tingling in my left front thigh.

Not related: Not likely to be related. One fairly common cause of thigh numbness is a condition called meralgia parenthetica. Caused by entrapment of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve at the groin.

I have numbness and tingling in my left thigh and it feels like a rubber band is around my left groin which is worse during menstration. Caused by?

I would guess this is coming from your back.: The nerve supply for these areas comes out of the low back. You can be worse during your menstrual cycle because of the extra fluid and pelvic congestion will add pressure to the nerves. Sometimes the tingling on the thigh is specific to a nerve called the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve. It is fairly common with tight clothes or people employed that lean against the counter or have a heavy toolbelt. If it's really bothering you a lot you should go see your doctor and get checked out for the possibility of a lumbar disc.

Unpinch the nerve.: Sounds like you have a disk herniation. As long as the pain is tolerable, and you do not have progressive increasing weakness, or lose the ability to control the bladder or bowels, the vast majority of disk herniations can be treated without surgery. I recommend you get a good exam by a spine specialist, then follow instructions on use of medications, stretchs and activities modifications.

Low back pain: Back and thigh pain can originate from a variety of locations including the back, sacroiliac joints and hips. Examination with a spine expert and imaging of the low back, pelvis and hips can help establish the diagnosis and develop a plan for treatment.

Low back pain with right thigh numbness and right arm/hand/wrist pain/numbness. Sneezing causes extreme aching pain in both arms. Thoughts on causes?

Low back pain with right thigh numbness and right arm/hand/wrist pain/numbness. Sneezing causes extreme aching pain in both arms. Thoughts on causes?

Spine specialist W/U: It coulb be from disc disease in your neck or high in the back creating some nerve root irritation from the sudden negative intrathoracic pressure created by the sneeze. When not sneezing the disc may look normal, which makes it very difficult to diagnose. The same phenomenon can result from a build up of bone (osteophytes) near the central canal or the foramen where the nerves travel.

I have numbness and tingling sensation in my leg when I got up to walk I had trouble and I couldn't feel it and I almost fell who should I see for this?

Could be normal: You might have just compressed your sciatic nerve - the main nerve from your spine that extends all the way to the toes. Sometimes you can sit on this nerve "wrong" and cause compression and a transient tingling and numbness. If this only happens with certain seated positions, then I wouldn't worry. If you have random tingling, numbness, pain, or esp weakness, then go see a Primary Care doc.

How can I treat sciatica naturally, especially at the stage of increasing numbness and tingling of leg?

Core Exercises: Typically core strengthening exercises are the best to help relieve pressure and forces in the spine. I would try and google some or look them up on youtube to see descriptions. If you can do them yourself, wonderful otherwise ask your doctor to get a referral to a good physical therapist for further assistance.

Pinched nerve: Your symptoms, in particular the left leg numbness/tingling/pain/weakness, strongly suggest a pinched nerve in your lumbar spine. If your symptoms are progressively worsening, you may even need surgery. See a physician for further evaluation and treatment options.

Left sided numbness: These are symptoms of great concern. There are several possibilites one of which could be a warning of an impending stroke. You should call your doctor asap to report this and get seen for an examination to determine the cause. Do not delay this. If you suddenly worsen call 911. Alert your family that you are having trouble and do not be alone until you get medical help.

Pat: Visit your internist and let them examine you. I wonder if you have any back pain? Certainly, don't wait for this to get worse, an entire extremity is already a large area that likely should of been investigated already.

? Herniated Disc: Time to visit your friendly neighborhood doctor to get this checked out. It may be the position you sleep in or you may have nerve impingement secondary to a herniated disc in your back. Peace and good luck.
