Tingling / Numbness
Ever slept in a strange position, woken up with no feeling in your arm, and then had those oh-so-excruciating pins and needles as the numbness wore off? This kind of tingling and numbness is common and temporary, of course. But if you have this pins-and-needles sensation often, or you have numbness or weakness in your limbs—all for no particular reason—it could be a sign that something is amiss. Specifically, that the nerves that carry messages from your brain to your body are not working quite right, or that the nerves in your extremities might be damaged. This symptom is linked to peripheral neuropathy, which can be caused by traumatic injuries, many conditions (such as Lyme, diabetes, and lupus), vitamin deficiencies (particularly B vitamins, niacin, and vitamin E), exposure to toxins, and infections. With so many possible underlying causes, it’s a good idea to see a practitioner to help determine why you’re experiencing this distracting symptom. Unlike pins and needles you wake up with, you can’t just shake these off—much as you might like to! But you can try to figure out what’s causing them, and then work to treat the root of the problem.

I wish that some doctors understood that just because they don't know what's wrong, it doesn't mean that it's all in the patient's mind. Because PCP was unavailable, had to go to walk-in clinic for my pain, numbness and tingling on my whole left side. Both times sent to ER. They ruled out heart attack and stroke, then sent me home. I now have a humongous bill and frustration. 3 more days 'til PCP appt. Neurologist insists I see my PCP first. Do I dare hope that doctors will figure this out?
Hi. i haven’t been diagnosed with anything yet. I get dizziness, heart palpitations, in the heat my bones will hurt really bad and my feet, ankles and fingers swell, I get heart palpitations in the heat, I get numbness feeling in some parts of my face and my arms. Some days I feel great. I’ve had MRIs, catscans, checked for seizures, heart ultrasounds, checked for strokes.. multiple panels of blood work. everything comes back fine. does anyone else have similar symptoms? my EBV # was high...

anyone experienced a tickling feeling all over when laying or sitting still? also itching all over.. I went to the doctor last week for a pain i started having in the right side of my upper back, the pain went away and I’m having numbness now wrapping from my back around the top of my chest on and off.. I had slightly swollen lymph nodes.. and very slightly elevated wbc count but my doctor didn’t seem too concerned..
it’s weird you guys. I feel uncomfortable. I get a strange tingling all over my body (especially my scalp). I wash my hair every other day. my skin is also very sensitive. I’ve also been having some bad reflux it really sucks. I researched my symptoms online and I read a lot about how anxiety and stress manifests physically. Anxiety activates nerve fibers, causing those uncomfortable sensations. it’s been going on for a while now (because I’ve been at this for a while). can’t stand it any longer
