Tingling and Numbness Across Middle of Back
Ever since I became pregnant with my first child 4 years ago, I have experienced on and off tingling and numbness across the midsecion of my back. My doctor told me this was pregnancy related, but it`s never gone away, even after pregnancy. There`s no pain, and the sensation lasts a few seconds and then disappears when I shift position. It happens either sitting or standing. What could this be?
Thank you for visiting NetWellness. On this site, we try to answer general questions about health but cannot diagnose or recommend treatment. You appear to have some very, very specific questions about your condition, which can only be answered properly by a physician who is familiar with your history, physical exam, and test results. Take care.
