Thanks for writing to us.
Heaviness and numbness in extremities could be due to cervical spine. Need more information from you. Do you feel imbalance while walking? any recent changes in urination? any arm pain or leg pain? how about doing fine functions with hand such as holding spoon, writing? how is your walking tolerance? is it reduced recently?
First of all its important to establish the diagnosis? I would suggest to consult a spine specialist and get a thorough exam. you may have to do spine x-ray and MRI. Please get back with above information.
