Hello,
Thanks for the query
I have noted your medical problem
The causes of such numbness in various areas of body can happen due to
1. Low calcium 2. Thyroid problem and 3. Diabetes
You need these tests to find out the cause. A neurological examination will be required to assess if there are any specific nerves are involved or not. Based upon this examination data, we will plan for other investigations like nerve conduction test and/or MRI of the neck area which can present in this way. Once the because and the diagnosis are clear, treatment will be easy
Please get back if you need any other information
Best wishes
