Hello, guys. I've searched around for my problem, and I just can't seem to find a solid answer. Both of my thighs are numb, with my left thigh the worst. It feels like what your lips would go through after getting the numb shot from a dentist. I have been eating paleo for two months, and this has never happened until recently. So, I got it checked out at six docs. None of them have an answer. Is this just part of my detox phase? Has anyone ever had numb thighs? I am growing quite worried about this. I know that it is not MS or a pinched nerve. In fact, the neurologists did not even know what it was. If you guys could offer some help, I'd really appreciate it.
Just some extra info in case it helps: I am not going low carb. I do light activities, such as walking and playing outside with my younger siblings. I also experience very sore arms and back. I get hungry quickly.

numbness is not a detox symptom. You could potentially have some sort of vitamin deficiency though. I am not a doctor, but I did read in a nutrition book about how vit E deficiency can cause numbness. Can you tell me some of the foods you eat of a regular basis?
Seeing a naturopathic doctor or a chiropractor could help - they can help when medical doctors are clueless.

I had sore/numbish thighs for a while too.. Since I've started implementing more interval sprints and kettlebell training into my workouts they've eased up! Maybe you could give that a go? I'm getting a lot better results from HIIT vs long drawn out cardio (running) which I found just ended up ruining my legs. Despite general perception, docs don't have all the answers, if they did then none of us would be here!
