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.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 months 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?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 months ago.

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

well, this can definitely cause pain and weakness in your knees and pain in your leg joints.

will this go away in a few days , or should I get it examined by a specialized Doctor.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 months ago.

have you had these symptoms for 2-3 weeks already.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
it comes and goes !
Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 months ago.

are they getting worse or more frequent

or slowly getting better?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
It remains the same !
Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 months 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.
