Good evening sir. I feel numbness in my right leg and my buttocks, to the extent that I find it difficult to walk sometimes. Recently, I have to go for lab tests as recommended by a doctor at UNTH, Enugu after physical examination but the lab results shows that I am OK. This sickness has nothing to do with my bones as I don't feel pain in my bones at all. The doctor finally prescribed some drugs like paracetamol, vitamins and intravenous injection for me and reassured me that I will get well after taking those drugs but I still feel same numbness in my right leg, buttocks and at times in my right hand up till now.
Please what do I do in this case?

First, let me get to know your definition of what you meant by the term, numbness?
When you write "leg", do you mean your thigh(lap), the leg(holding your calf) plus your foot? Or, which part?
When you write "hand", do you mean your arm, your forearm then joining the hand(containing your palm) together? If not, which part?
When you write "buttocks", which side/part(upper/down[left/right]) of the buttocks?
Is it both side of the buttocks?

Can you recall what kind or sort of physically examination he did for you?
Can you tell what lab work he did with respect to your complaint?


Let's start here before I take proper history.

What I mean by right leg is from right foot to right buttocks.
By numbness I mean feeling of weakness. I can't start on my right leg at all. I can't carry anything on my right lap alone. I think that particular leg is always shaking or vibrating inside more than the left leg.
I am referring to the middle of left buttocks.
I went for scrotal ultrasound, to check for baricocele

Let's start here before I take proper history.

What I mean by right leg is from right foot to right buttocks.
By numbness I mean feeling of weakness. I can't start on my right leg for 10seconds. I can't carry anything on my right lap alone. I think that particular leg is always shaking or vibrating inside more than the left leg.
I am referring to the middle of left buttocks.
I went for scrotal ultrasound, to check for varicocele and hormonal analysis. But lab result showed that I am fine.
He just examined me physically by examining(looking at)my leg and my scrotal sacs.

Age?
Sex?
Why were you checking for varices and doing hormonal assay, was it for the numbness or some other complaint?
Did you have any accident, perhaps a simple fall?
Suffered any infection before?
Blood pressure?
Blood sugar or any related blood sugar analysis?
Any heart problem or any health problem that have warranted your seeing a doctor most of the time now or before apart from this numbness?
Have you suffered seizures before?

I may examine you on just 3 systems after but I alter in this decision depending on how you give reply. Apart from this, you will still have to see a doctor for full prep.
Re: Ask Me Anything On Drugs And Supplements by digital2018: 5:23am On May 07
Thank you for your reply.

I am a male adult Nigerian of 29years old.I have not suffered from any of the above illnesses (seizures or any heart problem, infection or blood pressure,blood sugar or experienced any accident).
The tests are for the numbness. He just said I should go and do the test even when I subtly asked why I should go and do the above tests, his reply was that I should go and do it.
The only sickness that took me to hospital in the time past was malaria/typhoid, which normally surfaces once in blue moon.

Thank you.

What is causing you to have loss in appetite to food?
Is there anything the problem?
Nothing, just see myself not having appetite for food. Any help?

You may do the following to help cause you to increase your appetite for the want of food:

1. Avoid a sedentary lifestyle. Have something to do to keep your head and mind going. Keep yourself away from home.

2. Intake of little alcohol can helps freshened your want from food.

3. Eat snacks, biscuits and little of soft drinks especially some hours before meal.

4. Early morning exercise and a good sleep can raise up your appetite threshold.

5. Eat your likes, eat your affordable likes and little worry about what you can't afford.

6. Make use of useful food substitutes to enrich your appetite. For example, instead of eating rice all the time, prepare a nice lovely jollof with a spaghetti. Instead of garri flakes, you may try on yam, corn or wheat flour for your soup. Place variety over conservative staple food in a completely sense.

7. Spice up your food. Go into the market enough chicken, goat meat, pomo and many others, lace the surface of the food to your liking.

8. Care for others. One way to enrich your appetite is actually to care for others. When you choose to cook for a friend that is willing to eat your food, you will be joyous to eat your food. Your appetite will come up when you eat with crowd than ypu eating alone.

9. Learn to cook should you haven't.

10. Are you stressed in anyway? Is there anything really bothering you? You lost someone or job? You are preparing for an exams or anything? Do you have some bills yet to pay?

Apart, from this loss in appetite what other symptoms do you have?

No, doctor never recommended but I made research on internet that they relieve pain.

I do take gabepentin,diclofenac but no relief
I also use hot therapy and use a special pillow meant for this illness to sleep
I use neck collar also but not always.
