I am in my early thirties with a bodyweight of 160 lbs and a body height of 5' 2.5". Currently, I have been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, mixed hyperlipidemia, fibromyalgia, high cholesterol levels, and hip issues. The outer part of my right thigh has been numb for three months. I only feel a sharp shooting-searing pain that comes in waves for a month and a half. The pain worsens on sleeping.
I am taking the tablet Norco 5/325 mg and the tablet Naproxen 500 mg.
I have read your concern in detail and I will surely help you out. The numbness and leg cramps you are experiencing are commonly known as sciatica. They can be cured with proper sitting posture, regular exercise, and specific vitamin supplements. You should consume vitamin supplements containing Methylcobalamine 1500 mcg, Folic acid 5 mg, and Pyridoxine 20 mg. This combination will do wonders for you. Apart from this, the right combination of drugs for rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, and high cholesterol will make you fit within two weeks. Controlling rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia and high cholesterol are necessary as these can also lead to numbness and pain. There is nothing to worry about. All these diseases are easily manageable. You are going to be fine with the right treatment.
Hope this helps.
