so you think the enlarging cyst/mass in your right back is causing numbness in your legs?

Dr. David :

both legs? one leg?

Dr. David :

if your right leg is swollen, you should get an ultrasound to rule out deep venous thrombosis.

the numbness is mainly in my right leg, both feet fall asleep alot too, what kind of dr. do i go see. because i have no insurance

Dr. David :

you can go to the ER to get an ultrasound of your right leg. it is that important.

Dr. David :

they will do chest and abdomen CT scans also in the ER.

Dr. David :

if they find any more abnormality, they will call specialist to see you

Customer:
