I had same problem as you and went thinking i had mri nerve test etc...finally after 3 doctors went to primary and ran blood test and urine test...got a call saying my B12 levels were very low...prescribed B12 shots...after giving myself a shot every week i am without the numbness etc...i was also feeling weak confused etc...who would think low level of B12 could cause so many problems
