The left side of my body is slowly becoming completely numb. Why?
Hello. My name is Amanda. I am 19 years old. A few months ago the top of my left foot started randomly becoming numb throughout the day. At first I wasn't worried about it, but now other parts of the left side of my body are going numb as well.
The numbness started with the top of my left foot, and a few weeks ago began the top of my left leg.. just above the knee.
This morning the outside of my left upper thigh had sharp pains and was tingly.
I've been up for a few hours, working, and now the side of my left hand is numb. The numbing involves my pinky, ring finger, and the whole side of my hand. It is also beginning to feel numb all the way up to my elbow.

I wasn't sure if this was something that I need to go and see a doctor about, or if it was something I might be able to fix easily.
Please help?

It could be anything from a pinched nerve, to anxiety, to MS.
Could be many other things as well.

You should see your doctor to rule out anything serious.
