Numbness

Postby Theresa34 » Sun Feb 23, 2014 5:18 pm

Today I have a weird feeling in my legs. It feels like everything below my waist is numb but i am still able to walk. Its weird. Is this a symptom of FM?

Hi I don't know if it's a symptom but I have also been suffering with numbness in my right leg. I was on crutches a few weeks ago with it but not needing them at the moment, haven't been able to feel the right side of my right leg for 3 weeks now. Also often get a dead feeling in the top of my right thigh. Hope it goes away soon x

I had to go for an MRI due to numbness in my right leg. This detected DDD (degenerative disc disease) and prolapsed discs.

Not sayin this is the problem but it does need investigating as you may have an underlying cause and it not be fibro.

Numbness can be associated with FM, but can also be due to a number of other possibilities. As Lisa has said, this does need investigating to determine the cause of it. Another thing to add to your list for a GP appt I'm afraid :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:
