Hi there. Pain, numbness in left shoulder and thigh and right thigh could be due to various reasons like compressive radiculopathy at the cervico thoracic levels and lumbar level. These could be due to multiple vitamin deficiencies like B12, B6, B1,and folic acid. These could be hypothyroidism, diabetic or alcoholic neuropathies. An MRI spine would clarify lot of concerns. Vitamin supplements in diet should be started. Rule out any urgent causes like guillain barre syndrome.
An immediate neurological consult is warranted.
