See an orthopedist: It is hard to know without examining you, and without knowing where you are numb, what is causing your problem.

This could result in weakness of your foot, and is something to take seriously - see an orthopedic surgeon. ...Read more
Pain: lower back, thigh, one leg. Behind knee. Inner thigh.Tingling & numbness in foot. Lost control on my bladder once 2day. No sleep bc of pain. ??
Sounds serious...: When a person loses control of the bladder, but was fine before... that's a problem. When combined with neurological symptoms in the legs or lower back, it becomes an emergency.

The Emergency Room doctor can ask the Neurologist to help. ...Read more

Sorry, but that's my thinking, so far. ...Read more

My feet often turn purple/blue when im sitting or standing. It doesn't bother me, no numbness, pain, tingling. What could cause this?. Im 23.
Circulation problem?: Purple or blue coloring to hands or feet usually means decreased or slowed circulation to the area. This can happen if the blood vessels get compressed or if the vessels tighten themselves and lessen the blood flow. Sometimes, blood flow will change due to nerve signals or chemical signals telling the vessels to constrict. A primary doctor and a rheumatologist can evaluate and look for the cause. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
