Lower body numbness w no pain

Hi, since May 11th i have been mostly numb from mid buttocks to the bottom of my feet but only on my backside, all front facing part have full sensation. I have no loss of function or strength, i just cannot feel my 'skin'. It's challenging to go to the bathroom since i cannot feel what im doing, but no incontinence or accidents. My feet feel like fat balloons about to burst if i put any weight on them so walking is a burden. I saw a spine surgeon and he basically told me there is nothing he can do and sent me to my primary care doc. She agrees that it sounds like CE and has put me on steroids.

Awaiting an ultrasound tomorrow and then likely an mri.

Has anyone had CE without pain????

I have had sciatica on and off for years so i am convinced this is somehow related.

Not sure what to do and if i need to be at the panic point.

Thanks, appreciate any feedback.
