What causes tingling sensations in lower body with numbness and burning in toes?

I injured my knee while bowling and think I may have a torn meniscus. An MRI showed no tear, but did show wear and tear and a small bone spur on the knee. I also have tingling sensations in the upper and lower leg, hip and lower back pain, numbness and burning in the toes.

As these symptoms are indicative of nerve pull or disc injury bAn MRI is suggested.

Due to the spinal nerve pathology, there are abnormal sensory changes in the nerve supplied dermatomes and myotomes. Due to which there will be back pain, tingling, numbness, burning, etc.

I will advise for MRI of the lumbar spine. Post which with exercises you should do well. Exercise includes - core stability, spinal muscle strengthening, hip muscle strengthening, static hamstring, static Quadriceps, straight leg raise, bridging exercise, ankle toe movements you get good outcome score.

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

Hi.Am 22 years old and live in Mauritius. I rarely wear very high heels and usually i feel comfortable in the shoes i wear. But a week ago i wear a high heel shoes for around 3 days and started feeling some discomfort while i was wearing it. Now i feel that my 3rd toe in my left leg has gone numb. Am not sure if this happened after wearing the high heel shoes or it was there before but i didn`t pay attention to it. I remember once i was washing my legs and felt like a tingling sensation in that toe. Otherwise my other toes and my right leg is fine. What can cause this?Why am i feeling this numbess?Can it be due to lack of water in the body?

I started experiencing tingling and numbness in my toes on both feet. I had a complete physical scheduled in a few weeks but the tingling and numbness became worse and spread to my calves and even in my upper legs. I went to the doctor before the physical and spoke to the doctor. He told me that the possible causes were diabetes, neuropathy, lower back problems or a vitamin B 12 deficiency .The doctor went ahead with the blood work and I was to return in a couple of weeks for the results. So I had a friend who is a diabetic check my blood sugar and it was normal. I went to the store and purchased a B12 / B complex and started taking it daily. Within about 7 days the symptoms subsided. When I went back to my doctor for the results I was shocked to find that my B12 levels were not low but high at 1800. The doctor took more blood and called me back two days later to tell me that my B12 levels were now over 2000 and to quit taking the supplement. However, He never explained why my levels were so high to begin with. I have cut back on the B12 and am now experiencing some numbness again in my toes. I am also having trouble sleeping. I go to sleep right away but wake up about two hours later with restlessness in my legs and my whole body. I usually just get up and go down stairs and watch TV for a while and then the pain will subside and I can go back to sleep. What could be causing these symptoms?

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here... Hi, my granddaughter is 17 and is doing track that started in January. Today while she and I were sitting in church her heart began to beat fast and later she had some pains in her chest around her heart. She also had some pains in her back. When I got to her house this morning she was having really bad stomach pains, could the chest pains be related to her stomach pains or should we be concerned since I have heard of sports player falling dead with their heart?
