The symptoms of numbness and pain suggest a probable neurological problem. Conditions causing pressure on nerves serving the function of sensation can cause numbness and pain. There are conditions like syringomyelia, which can cause similar symptoms. Your medical history says that you are disabled with muscle cramps, which definitely needs a complete neurological examination and investigations like a CT scan and/or x-rays.
It is definitely advisable to see the neurologist and get necessary tests and investigations done to identify the problem. Thank you.
