Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

T-8, T-9 supply abdomen above the navel. They have nothing to do with legs or arms.
he may need to be examined on more than one occasion - to look for evolving clues.
Instead of ER again, regular visit to a specialist will help.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
