Well, this is comforting news. I ended up getting bothered enough by the numbness in my extremeties that I called my doctor’s office today, and they got me in to see another doctor in their after-hours clinic. The doctor said that he can’t readily explain why I would have numbness in both my fingers and my toes, and he was hoping that the problem with my hand was just a fluke, since it only started happening today. Anyhow, he said that since I have accompanying back pain (that I’ve had for about a week) that a muscle in my back must be spasming and pinching a nerve, which is causing the problem with my toes being numb. He gave me some drugs that may help with that, but if somehow the hand problem is related to the other, then it might be something wrong with my brain, like a tumor. He said if the prescription doesn’t start working, then I’ll have to go in for all kinds of fun tests, like an MRI and maybe some others.
