Possible s/e: Wellbutrin (bupropion) can cause tingling or paresthesias, but this is an uncommon side effect. If dose is lowered or stopped and tingling subsides, you know it was a side effect. Discuss with prescribing doctor who may want to adjust dose or try a different med. I hope this helps.

A 36-year-old member asked:

My arms are going numb and tingling a lot. I'm 21 weeks and I had this with my first two pregnancies. What causes it?

Arm numbness: Sounds like carpel tunnel syndrome. It is fairly common in pregnancy due to swelling in the hands. It is caused by compression of a nerve as it passes from the wrist into the hand. Often worse in the dominant hand but can be in both hands. Can wake you up at night when the hands feel like they are "asleep". Will likely go away after delivery. Try wearing thumb spica splints at night.
A member asked:

Can past history of foreign body in nose be a cause for nose bleed ?

Unlikely: If a foreign body such as a rock was the cause of the bleeding it is likely the bleeding would have been present all along. One exeption would be if not all of the foreign body was removed. Your nose would react to the remnants of the foreign body and could cause bleeding or foul smelling discharge.

Maybe, maybe not: If a person is "out of shape" due to not exercising recently, then getting some muscle aches or cramps with running or walking isn't bad. With stretching, massage, and a gradual increase in exercises, the symptoms should go away. If symptoms persist or are worrisome, a primary care doctor should evaluate to see if there is a disease or disorder that is causing the pains.

A female asked:

Do I have dry skin or eczema? My body tends to get dry easily. Why is that? And how can I make it better?

Doc needs to examine: Many skin conditions are difficult to diagnose without being seen. Some preventive measures: take warm showers (hot ones strip natural oils; baths do likewise); moisturize immediately after shower; if in sun or wind, moisturize & use sunblock; avoid strong soaps/body washes.
