Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 1 year ago

how old are you?

are you male or female?

do you have bad anxiety symptoms? bad anxiety symptoms often can magnify small symptoms to make you worried.

do you have a doctor you can see who can examine these areas and do a neurological exam for these areas of numbness?

I thought with time it wont get better but, it has been constant !
Please advice.
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 1 year ago

damage to your knee nerves would not cause numbness to your face and head

it could cause weakness in the leg.

What do you suggest this is?
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 1 year ago

did you hit your head during the sky dive? this can sometimes cause brain concussion injury and neurological symptoms.

No brain injury !
I landed straight and hard on my both knees and foot ankle
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 1 year ago

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
it comes and goes !
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 1 year ago

are they getting worse or more frequent

or slowly getting better?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It remains the same !
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 1 year ago

I think you should see a neurologist nerve doctor and get your nerves tested

you may benefit from a brain MRI scan

you could have a mild concussion from the fall onto your knees which could have caused trauma to your brain if it was a hard fall

and this could be causing you to have some numbness on your face.

let me know if you have other questions.
