Read up on neuropathy if you haven’t already. I’ve had this for years. It’s an aggravation but it doesn’t stop me from doing anything.

I mean i had issue with neck and did that mri year prior…

So i assumed it was that… but what kills
Me how it increaes from workout and intensty… even walking outside will get leg on 10/10 numbing sometimes tingling

Whats soultion? Is it neck related?

bighdx <---- not a doctor

Disc hernations that pinch the nerve can cause your problems. For the lower body, it would be a lumbar disc herniation, though.

Yes i have l4-l5 and l5-s1 issue for 7 years

But werid is the day it all started it all was together the numbness and tingling up and down… why thou thats so ockward

The day your lower body started tingling. Exactly what did you do in the gym?

Even with simple issues it is difficult to help someone over the internet. But this is all very complex stuff, especially when you’re talking about nerve problems.

My advise would be to find the right specialist. In your case a neurologist would be your go-to. Hopefully he can make a good diagnose and send you to someone who is specialised in treating neurological issues. No one on this forum is going to diagnose and fix it for you. Take care!!!
