I have permanant numbness in my legs from the knee's down,no sensation whats so ever.I do however get periods of electrical shocks in my feet that can knock me off of them.A year ago I stepped on a nail and ended up in the ER because of an infection.I was given the standard tetanus shot and have had odd numbness ever since(recently diagnosed with MS).I get numbness in my face ,hands,finger tips.Besides being annoying its painful.
Yours seems to be spreading,have you had a lumbar puncture to see if this is inflammatory?
My youngest daughter had shingles when she was 6,now at the age of 11 she still don't like shirts with the tags in them and doesn't like anything tight against her back.My heart breaks for you.I know what it was like dealing with my daughter and the pain she went through once I couldn't imagine it 2 times.
I agree with susan you need to get a second opinion,you could have more than one thing going on.
It can be hard to distinguish between the 2.I had a heck of a time to get a neurologist to listen to me.I had 2 lumbar surgeries 7 years ago and all of a sudden I had lost the use of my right leg,had drop foot,lost ankle reflex,numbness in boyh legs and now they wanted to blame the back surgeries.Since the numbness and other symptoms moved above the lumbar region they finally listened.The nervous system is the hardest to figure out.Hang in there and be persistant and be your own advocate.If you don't agree with your neuro make him explain his reasoning,sometimes little things get over looked .
My prayers are with you

Well I think imay get better right now it is bearable but i dont know. If it goes away should i still try to keep on finding out or should i just move on and wait when it happens again. I mean what choice do i have stressing will just makeing me get shingles again. I hate this crap to bad i didnt get to go in when i had the attack then they could have seeen my blood pressure or something. for the past 3-4 years i had a small tingling sensation that seemed to become more and more it was everday nothing that hurt and i did tell my do but they just kind of brushed it away at that time so did it then this other doc thought i was lying but went ahead and go tme to do an emg somewhere i dont even know if it was done right but the result came back clear. Well of course because there was no damage done yet probably. Then i got the shingles. When i got the shingles all the tingling stopped that was last year i had phn and it finally went ALL away by jan. from June 05-jan06 i had no tingly just had phn that was wearing down and becoming very less. By jan i was pain free NO tingling even and it thought everything was all over it was weird how the tingling went away during that period when i had phn. Then in may out of no where my foot felt like it was on fire just a couple times and i felt something in my head 2 times I didnt think much of it just really didnt. June came and out came the shingles again no rash my back started burning and hands ached and then i kept thinking ah maybe its in my head so by the 3rd day it was burnign hand ached bottom of my legs ached i went in they gave me a shot of kenalog and valtrex for a week for the pain. I was done with the meds of 7 days had nothing else then i had this severe twitching and eletric shock attack thing that happend for a few days and slowly it lessened . Today my legs havent bottered me too much but hands have.
