What do I need to do to get better

I am a 16 year old male who had a seizure a few moths ago. The hospital said it was probably caused by my high blood pressure it was over 216.  But what came after was worse. I noticed when I was taking a shower in the hospital that I couldn’t feel my leg when I scrub it. But the doctors didn’t really look into it and said it will probably go away soon but it didn’t. My leg started to hurt really bad after I got out of the hospital and my knee would hurt also but what scared me was that it would start to give out.  I would be walking and my knee would just give out and I would fall. I started to walk with a cane. At first I thought I was getting better because I was able to walk without it but it started getting worse lately. My leg a knee is hurting more every day and it’s getting harder to walk every day. The numbness in my leg is spreading ever day.  I am afraid that I am going to end up I a wheelchair. So I was asking if someone knew why this is happening or if they can recommend what I should do. I have been to a lot of doctors but nobody knows why. So I’m ask for someone to please help me
