Suggest treatment for numbness in legs

My 23 yr old daughter has had unexplained numbness in legs for 3 hrs. MRI 2 yrs ago did not show MS as diagnosis. We figured maybe stress? She now in the last month has noticed bruising, is fatigued, has bone pain, and when her arm suddenly went numb yesterday the doctor saw her and also diagnosed Petechia on legs. They took 12 vials of blood for testing. We do not live in the same state and I only know what she can remember to tell me. What do you think he is looking for? When might we know something?

hi,

thank you for providing the brief history of your daughter. As, you mentioned about MS i do not think this should be the case. As the pain is in the arm, legs, numbness, bone pain and fatigue, it can be a metabolic dysfunction which needs a correction. Since now medicine is implemented for symptomatic relief which allows the body to heal on its own.

Also, undergoing a physical therapy will help further to first reduce the pain and numbness. For pain in bone, there is a need for calcium and Vitamin D - for calcium milk is the source and for Vitamin D sun is the source. Also for fatigue, exercises will help improve the metabolism activity of the cellular functioning and help delay the fatigue. Also with exercises which included cardiorespiratory training will help improve the oxygenated blood supply to the cells and improve the mechanism.

sometimes, symptoms can be controlled with a natural way rather getting making it too much complicated. If you have more doubt i can explain in detail if you provide me proper and detailed history.

I wish your daughter a speedy recovery
