Here is My Question:
My EMG and NCV were negative but my left foot have been numb and tingling for four months and now it’s spread to my shin. My general practitioner says there’s nothing else to do, to just wait it out. Any advice?
Persistent numbness of the left foot warrants an evaluation by a neurologist. That is your next step. It is hard to provide further advise or information without completely reviewing your case and, even then, you require examination by a trained neurologist.
