What Causes Numbness Below The Navel On The Right Side?

Good morning. I have some numbness on the rightside of my abdomen just below ribcage to under my bellybutton. I Recently had a full blood count,vitamin B12 check and thyroid fuction test. All was normal but thyroid was borderline. I also had numbness in both legs which has subsided but I did get diagnosed with trapped sensory nerve in left leg. My concern is now the abdomen numbness as I have no idea whats causing it. Could this also be related to my back?

Hi,

Yes, they could be related as all sensation carrying nerves ultimately relay in the spinal cord so you should get a neurologist opinion.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
