    Jolly, most of the time these types of problems arise for the muscles being irritated! First thing that you should do is concentrate on your posture! Simple changes away from the normal plumb of posture set up extra stress to the muscles! These muscles become tired and clamp down on nerves that run through them! This then sets of numbness and or pain! The most common of these is at the L5/S1 nerve! This will run down the side of the leg cross the knee going down the shin into the toes! Stretching of the back is not really going to relieve the symptoms! Try this to see if it helps! Sit in a straight chair and raise your left arm up above your head as high as you can stretch it noting the height achieved by the outstretched fingertips! Relax that arm and now do the right arm! You are going to find that one arm achieved a greater height so start with that arm first! Raise that arm up as high above your head as possible for 30 seconds and then rest it for 15 seconds! Repeat this twice more with that arm and then do the same 3 movements with the opposite arm! Now turn your head to the left as far as you can noting the endpoint of rotation the do the same to the right! Again start in the direction that went the furthest! Turn the head in that direction as far and hard as you can for 30 seconds and then relax for 15 seconds! Repeat this twice more in that direction and then do the same 3 movements in the opposite direction! Lastly, place your hands on the chest or stomach and turn your torso to the left as far as you can noting the endpoint of rotation then do the same to the right! Start in the direction that rotated the furthest! Turn in that direction as hard and far as you can for 30 seconds and then relax for 15 seconds! Repeat this twice more and then do the same in the opposite direction 3 times! Now get up and move around! There should be more mobility! Do these movements at least twice a day! The reason for these movements is to free up the fascia! The fascia is a sheet of tissue that covers the entire body! If it gets caught or snagged it will restrict movement of the tissues there! This often results in pain or numbness! Hope this helps!
