Numbness or Tingling

Well, that's good, but your symptoms could still be due to a serious problem, such as a broken bone in the spine.

Other possibilities include an injured nerve or muscle; for example a herniated (or "slipped") disc could be pressing on a nerve.

Contact your physician for evaluation.
