Numbness in toes, arms, legs and upper lip. Could this from a spinal injury from past? Need MRI?

For the past year now my 2 big toes have been slightly numb, my arms and legs fall asleep really easily and recently I have noticed my upper lip going numb. I went to the doctor because I was worried I had a spine injury from a car accident I had, he had me get an EMG test on my legs and told me there was nothing wrong with me. But I m still worried, could it be more serious? Should I have have and MRI test?

Welcome to Health Care Magic
Hope you are doing great. How long did you had Spinal injury kindly specify the date. You should do MRI of spine if you got the injury recently. Usually numbness also occur due to vitamin deficiency. There is nothing serious but you should follow the protocol if your MRI reports come normal you should focus on vitamin deficiency.

Have a great day
