Hi, I have had a lot of aches and pains in my body, but today my fingers and feet feel as though they are numb. I can still feel but I have that feeling of numbness. Could a pinch nerve cause this problem.
Thank you Juls

Thank you for posting your query.

Your symptoms are suggestive of a peripheral nerve problem.

This can result from pinched nerve in the neck and lower back region.

Sometimes, it can also occur due to take vitamin B12 supplements.

If symptoms persist, you may consult a neurologist for evaluation.

Wishing you good health,
