numbness of right leg

I am 44 years and have been suffering from lower back pain due prolapse disc. I also have back of right knee pain and had arthroscopy last year.  I have pain on right hip, right heel, right shoulder blade and right neck.  Since 6 Jan 11 my right foot became numb while standing.  On 9 Jan 11 I received an injection of nerobion.  I will be receiving the second dose today.

I am worried if it was symptom of paralysis.  Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

With kind regards

Hi there. I understand your problems well, and would like to go with the possibility of nerve root compression at the cervical intervertebral space as well as lumbar disc herniation as the cause for this right sided numbness and pain. You need to consult a neurosurgeon for clinical evaluation including specific tests like straight leg raising test complemented with an MRI spine to confirm this as the cause for your symptoms.  Since all these symptoms didn’t occur on the complete right side of the body together, I would not think of a stroke. Take care.
