Help please re numbness

Recommended Posts

Hi all, can anybody help I’m 64 years of age always been very fit and healthy but now if I walk more than 50 yards my bum goes completely numb then my feet. I then sit down for only 5 minutes and every thing is fine, then start walking again and just happens all over again I have been to many doctors in Thailand but no one can seem to help me. I was wondering if Sheryl has any ideas.

All ideas and thoughts would be greatly appreciated as I am at an all time low.

Likely either a spinal problem or a vascular one.  As you mention numbness and not pain I would worry re spine.


Where in Thailand are you?

Could be spinal stenosis, typically pain and/or numbness that goes away when sitting down or bending forward. Have you done any MRI lumbar spine?

No Dr, but could be sciatica, especially if you have pain as well. Perhaps if it keeps happening go to a decent hospital for a look.

Sciatica comes with fierce pain...numbness is a relief.

See a Dr do not take non professional advice on what could be a life threatening matter.

Hi john I have been to see many doctors in Thailand all say not life threatening just old age.....?.... whilst back in the UK went to see doctors who all were pretty clueless but still charged £90 ...I was just hoping someone on the forum would say...oh I’ve had that and what to do I have googled just cannot seem to get anywhere and life is hell cannot go shopping or do anything basically housebound 

thanks anyway Stevon
