Hi esmeralda,

Welcome to healthcare magic forum,

Since 2 months numbness may be due to nerve compression or degeneration, may I know wats ur age? do u have diabetes or hypertension? do u hv low back pain?
My suggestion is to go to doctor and get all tests done to find out the actual cause and start the treatment.

Hope I have answered ur question.
