User :   Hi, I know the time for this chat is no where near enough to answer my question in detail; but I was looking for more of a simple yes or no answer to my question, would that be possible?
Doctor :   please proceed
User :   Well, last night I basically held myself off the ground for an hour by pushing my back against one wall and my feet against a wall across from it. In the last 10 minutes of the hour my left foot started feeling numb. I though this was normal and would go away the next, but it's been about 22 hours now and it's still the same numbness. I looked online and saw that a slipped spinal disk could cause such an occurence, and I do know a lot of pressure was on my lower back.
User :   Does this seem like a likely reason for my foot numbness?
Doctor :   no,
User :   What would seem like the most reasonable cause for my foot numbness?
Doctor :   it will get down by itself
Doctor :   it possible cause would be temporary compression of the cord which will revert back to normal
User :   I see. I appreciate your help.
User :   Thank you for your time.
