Have you been: sweating a lot?? Sometimes cramps and paresthesias are from low SODIUM in your body! You need some testing Blood Sodium/Calcium (electrolytes) Contact your PCP (Primary Care Provider) Hope this helps Dr Z

Simple or Not.: Having cramping, numbness and tingling in all four extremities would best be considered after a thorough exam and evaluation. The symptoms can be caused by a multiple of reasons that must be considered and eliminated. Having these symptoms for only 2-3 weeks does not necessarily mean the underlying cause has not existed longer. Start with a primary care physician, then possibly, a neurologist.
