Thanks for writing to us.
It seems that you have injured your spine due to the fall. The synmptoms of numbness in the leg are due to nerve compression due to the injury. You need proper investigations like MRI to find out the extent of damage. An orthopedician can guide you regarding the further treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
