it happened suddenly yesterday night...
Neurologist: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 10 months ago

OK

You need to get back to the ER now

This sounds like a major spinal stenosis problem--perhaps from multiple ruptured disks in your neck and thoracic spine

You need an immediate ct or MRI of both your cervical and thoracic spines and you may need emergency surgery for that since you may have a real risks of paralysis here

Please let me know if you need any more information

that's scary....I was in the er just two weeks ago...they gave me ultram and valium but then again I wasn't numb...I will call my orthopod...going to the er..they'll just send me home and tell me to follow up with my own drs...I bet.
i'll just be still today. back feels tight...the only thing with being numb is the pain is diminished.
I never injured myself.
