What is causing numbness in my foot, leg, hand and arm?

I had a tingling pinky and ring finger and forearm. I thought it was overuse of the mouse had aggrivated a nerve. The next day however I had numbness in the sole of my foot, my ankle and thigh. It is only on my right handside. I haven't had any accidents that I know of. I went to the doctor who referred me to hospital A&E. They did lots of reflex tests and say they don't know what it is as each of those nerves originates from different places. It is now four days and all down the back of buttock, leg and sole of foot are completely numb, alongside two fingers, forearm and shoulder blade.
Anyone any idea of why or better still anything I can do to feel better it is horrible!

    Go back to your doctor immediately and ask to be reffered to a neurologist. These doctors specialise in brain and spinal disorders, have they checked for Multiple sclerosis?. Have you pain in your back? it could be simply a trapped nerve but I don`t think so. Please go and insist on being reffered.
