Customer Question

I am 80 y ears old and generally in good health apart from IPF. I have also been diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis and have bilateral glove hand anaesthesia diagnosed after EMG studies
As Carpal Tunnel for which I have r ecently had Carpal Tunnel release.
Some 10 days ago I became aware of saddle Paraesthesia affecting perineal area and buttocks, no noticeable change in micturition, urinary flow, or bowel problems although for the last several years I have suffered from frequency and hesitancy particularly at night.
I would plan to call the GP tomorrow in some 12 hours time. Should that be OK and if Itake it easy will it settle ?

I think you must get it examined

You may need an MRI to see the progression of spinal stenosis or any entrapped nerve

After examining and an MR one can be sure that whether this will settle on its own or will require any other treatment
