Leg numbness meno-caused?

Posted by NoleChick_FL (My Page) on

For some reason, the outer part of my left thigh will go numb when I stand or walk for too long (or for whatever time IT determines is "too long"). This started in Sept. and several trips to the chiro. haven't made it stop (thought it was a lower-back problem, and it still may be). Prior gyn exam was normal... no fibroids, etc.

Anyone else have a goofy problem like this?

RE: Leg numbness meno-caused?

Localized areas of numbness, especially in the legs, are almost always related to the spine in some way. A consultation with a neurologist might be in order if this problem worries you. It is almost certainly not related to menopause.
