What causes numbness in feet?

I feel a numbness in both of my feet. Had nerve conduction test with little to no results. Then on to a neurologist who did 2 MRI only to find that I have a disc pressing in on my spinal cord. (I have a spot just underneath where my bra connects about the size od a lemon that is also numb). I have 2 degenarate discs as well in a higher area of my back. To add to this, I now feel as though my legs get cold internally, and it feels as though I m walking with a tennis ball taped to the ball go my right foot. The neurologist said he would not touch me due to risk of being paralyzed . I have a high tolerance for pain, but my foot is not tolerable. Which type of specialist such I seek to help with this? By the way I m not diabetic.
