Experiencing Numbness At Back Starting At The Neck To Lower Back. Is It Because Of Lung Scars?

i'm experiencing numbness at my back starting at the back of my neck but numbness changes. like yesterday numbness is at the middle of my back going down my lower back. today numbness is from back of my neck and left side (fronting at computer ) of my back. does it because of my lung scars ? i have no cough and difficulty in breathing. just numbness and it gets worst when sitting.

Hi,

To get a more precise answer, I would like to know the origin of your lung scars - what did your doctor say about them?

Next, I would also like to know what kind of job you are doing - Usually, low-physcial-activity jobs (like sitting in front of the computer) are often associated with problems with spinal nerves.

Therefore, I would suggest to discuss with your personal doctor (as he/she knows better your medical data as we do not have them all) to get an MRI of the spinal cord to exclude any local problem there.

Once such problems are excluded, you should get some specific exercises for your spinal cord to avoid such problems. But, talk to your doctor first to get the final decision.

Hope it helped!
