Dr. David :

Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and am ready to help.

Dr. David :

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.

Customer:

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:
