Hi and welcome,

First of all you need to find the cause of the numbness by getting thorough examination and investigations. Followup with your doctor for steroid dossage adjustment as well. In natural remedies i would suggest you to get regular massage therapy it would improve your blood supply and numbness. Taking multivitamins especially B-12 would help. Warm epsom salt baths and use of cinnamon and honey along with ginko biloba herb can improve your symptoms.The Ginkgo Biloba improve blood flow, brain functioning and act as an antioxidant, Ginkgo Biloba can be taken as a supplement two times a day. This herb will also help with memory problems due to dementia or Alzheimer’s while fighting intermittent numbness in hands and feet.
