Is it normal to have a back injury making everything numb, especially hands and legs for 9 weeks so far? I got the results of my x-ray and all the bones and joints were pretty much normal. I don't understand what is going on. because now I'm pretty much numb to the pain except for when it's sharp stabbing. Now everything feels numb. I'm also experiencing things similar to autism if not autism does that kind of contribute to what I'm experiencing?

      @Bre19 I will think about that.

      Might be a slipped disc

        @imtheecrybaby oh, I suppose that could be possible.

      Could be a pinched nerve or the muscles tightening around the spine. I get both, and they cause numbness and shooting pain. Might be a muscle tear, you might want to ask for ultrasounds to be on the safe side

        @RitaMarie thanks so much for the advice. I don't have much money so I will see if ohip covers it if I have a doctor's note. The life never had an ultrasound done before and I probably still have pinched nerve in one of my wrists so it's not far-fetched to say it's a pinched nerve and I really trust your experience is like mine.

      That doesn’t sound normal. I recommend going to a chiropractor before anything else. They will take X-rays and are able to determine what might be causing numbness. You got this.

        @JoranTal Thanks so much for the advice. I will try to talk about it with my doctor when I see her in April. She might give me the same advice. Can problems with tendons and nerves be seen on an X-ray?

          @Ash.G nope, they can't
