I am 39 years old female. I recently over the last few months have experienced numbing and tingling in my legs that came from nowhere. Now the numbness has spread to my genital area and perianal region to the bottom of my stomach and feels really frightening. I don't know how to describe it to my doctor. But he says it could be from my low iron level which was 3.52 but now has increased to 9 since my last visit.

Has your numbness improved with improvement in Hb level. If not then you need to ask your attending physician.
If your iron level normal and complaints as it is then its may be related to nerve problems consult with neurophysician.
