My numbness is: I cannot feel vibration with my eyes closed when my neurologist tests me for numbness.
I have it on my right side, in patches, from hip to the end of my toes. I have it on my left side from my knee down. Again, in patches.
Mine never goes away and it is caused by a peripheral neuropathy, although treated, cannot be reversed.
I have tingling in my right side from the top of my head down to the numb patches. But, only on my right side, not on my left.
It's not enough that we do our best; sometimes we have to do what is required.
