I was diagonised with transverse myelitis about 3 weeks

Customer Question

Hi. I was diagonised with transverse myelitis about 3 weeks ago. I had 3 treatments of IV steroids which helped and reduced some of the numbness in my thighs and inner calves. I can walk now with a can and have numbness in my lower legs. On tuesday this week i began to have numbness return to my thighs and my right side and my calves and feet are really numb now too. It has been presistant for 4 days now. Is this ok or should i go back to the dr or ER? Thanks jackie
