Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
Thanks for this question.
This is VERY serious.
You could have damage to the spinal cord. If you can't walk and can't feel your legs you need to go to A and E right away.
You need urgent attention for this or risk permanent paralysis
