Respected customer, thanks a lot for your input, and thanks again for visiting justanswer.com! A great place where you can find guidance and/or solution from real experts. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. Even I would get tense in this situation. This is just a nerve compression in your back which is causing numbness like this. You should take over-the-counter available tablet Advil 400 mg thrice daily for 5 days, massage the area with Bengay gel twice daily for 2 weeks, and use heating pads to the area twice daily for 2 weeks. I reassure you that this has nothing to do with any serious neurological problem If symptoms persist see your doctor as you may need physical therapy but hopefully this will not be required and you will feel better soon.

Yes, he has rightly put you on the pill. There is no need to worry about things like ALS etc because this is just nerve compression but yes, there can be input from the anxiety so avoid reading online about your problem because it will give you more stress.
It can't be anxiety but it can't be anything serious or neurological. Tingling means nerve issue. Take Vitamin B 12 daily. It is good for nerves.
The reason for spreading is due low vitamin B and even anxiety can make it worse, I am sorry I am using the word anxiety again and again but we keep getting such patients in anxiety as well.
No with this short history we can't say that it is spreading. It's just that it has persisted for some time now but it will be better soon. You are welcome dear, respected, and valuable customer. Your satisfaction is my prime goal. Have we discussed everything that you wanted? Thank you for choosing justanswer.com. Have a good day. Please remember to add me to your favorite doctor. Regards
You can use tablet vitamin B and apply heating pads to the area. Try to do deep breathing exercise and take rest.
I think you should go to the Er in that case.
Yes they might be right but at least there is nothing to worry.
I would suggest seeing a doctor.
