parenthesia under shoulder blade and toes

I recently noticed a numbness developing under my right shoulder blade. It appears seemingly randomly but it getting more frequent. A few days ago my left toes has gone numb as well but is completely consistent and this morning I've noticed the right toe has slightly started. I have no family history of diabetes and I'm in very good shape. I went to a doctor but he said its nothing. I felt very dismissed as the back has been almost a month getting worse. I was wondering if anyone has any idea what could be happening or has any better suggestions than "wait it out."

Thank you for asking
If the doctor has done some work up and ruled out any compressive neuropathy as the cause for these paresthesia then I am sure there is nothi BT to worry about.just modify lifestyle and posture habits.lose a second opinion from a spine specialist if you feel like under treated and let them sooth your nerves.get some physiotherapy sessions for the trouble and see of it helps. If you have some stomach problems assess vitamin b 12 and take them along with other vitamin supplements and see if it helps.
