After reading my comments left from online friends I decided to go and see someone this morning as the numbness was no better and I felt pretty rough.
I went to see a Physiotherapist who has a private practice in our village and she immediately said it was L5 and explained that some people get pain others get pins and needles or numbness but its the first time it has effected my left foot as I get pain all the time in my right foot and down my toe but not my left. The funny thing is that its my left leg that is the weakest.
My Physio has advised me to use heat or ice in the hope that it maybe just inflamed and then it might settle again so that’s what I have done today but no change yet. I guess I shall just have to wait and see.
I guess I’m a little bit anxious as any sites on spinal problems say any type of numbness is a “red flag” which means go and get it seen to asap but as my Physio didn’t say that I’m being a bit cocky and trying to ignore it !!
