Hello,
I can understand your anxiety.
We need to consider few causes. The cause can be related to nerve irritation {at the spine level or at its course}. Irritation of the nerve can be due to pinching from osteophyte or bulging inter vertebral disc. Other causes include vitamin B12 deficiency/ thyroid imbalance/ diabetes/ medication/ alcohol or tobacco/ abnormal mineral levels/ demyelination disease. Other possibility is narrowing of small vessels leading to less blood supply.
I would suggest you to have a physical check up along with few investigations like nerve conduction test/ MRI Brain and lumbar spine/ blood tests to clinch the diagnosis. Treatment will follow.
Till than take care of your lower limbs/ have balanced diet and adequate fluid/ take daily vitamin pill/ avoid alcohol and smoking.
Please do not worry, you will be fine soon. God bless

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
