I'm experiencing migraines, burning and tingling of the left foot/arm, thirsty, numbness of the face, exhaustion. What are these systems associated with?

May not be migraine: Migraines can sometimes cause neurologic symptoms in other parts of the body that can mimic a mini-stroke (TIA). But it's important to rule out more dangerous causes like aneurysm or tumor. CT or MRI of the brain, and possibly a CTA or MRA to look for aneurysms, is probably needed. See a doctor as soon as possible. ...Read more

Tingling sensation in face, lips, tongue and at times most of the body that goes down the left arm and into fingers, and at times down both legs and into feet and bottom of feet. Sometimes feels like itching. HX of lower back injury in 2002 & 2012?

Tingling: Tingling on both sides, in the face, and in an arm means there is no one location or side of the brain that is causing it. Tingling is an indication of irritation to nerves (or neuropathy), which can be from a metabolic problem (Eg, very low calcium) or from a diffuse skin problem causing the itching (such as hives or urticaria). Hyperventilation (breathing too fast) can cause tingling too. ...Read more

Tight chest, heart pound so fast, left arm feels tingling, dizzy, cold hand and feet, sweating, suddenly stiff at neck & shoulder. Heart attack or anxiety?

Tight chest, heart pound so fast, left arm feels tingling, dizzy, cold hand and feet, sweating, suddenly stiff at neck & shoulder. Heart attack or anxiety?

Uncertain: You are a 30 year old female - don't know if you have any risk factors for a heart attack. However, if you have never had a medical workup and had medical causes ruled out than having it assessed is prudent. It may be a panic attack but we can't diagnose it. ...Read more

Having pain on upper back, neck for 6 mnths with ankle & hip pain. Eyes burn and there's a tingling on left arm. What might be causing this?

Hard to say: If you are in the far east, then the list of possible causes could be extensive. Seem kind of young to have a herniated disc in neck or back, but it is possible. I would be more concerned about some type of chronic infection (TB) or nutritional deficiency. Get this checked out. ...Read more

Tingling in left arm and leg?

Unclear: What this could be, but if you are on oral contraceptives or have high blood pressure or have overexerted yourself, for example by power lifting, it could possibly represent a blood clot or another form of stroke. You should get an exam by a clinician to be sure it is not. Also if you have had any injury, your neck needs to be checked for any damage. Good luck! ...Read more

I have a severe pain in my shoulder and a weak, tingling left arm. What could be wrong?

Perhaps 2 issues: Not unique to have trauma to shoulder, with possible rotator cuff tear, and associated injury to the brachial plexus. But severe abrupt non-traumatic shoulder pain associated with numbness and/or weakness in the arm may be due to brachial plexitis (parsonage-turner syndrome), and should be managed with steroids. Last caveat, left arm can be associated with a cardiac issue. Get all checked out. ...Read more

Is pain in left arm with tingling in fingers cause for concern? Was hospitalized last yr with a PE.

Tingling in the arm: The tingling and pain along with numbness sometimes, is a symptom of a nerve pinched in the cervical (neck) spine. Possibly due to an injury such as falling forward or any jerky motion (incl chiropractic manipulations).

Differential diagnosis could be cervical radiculopathy (pinched nerve in neck), brachial plexopathy, peripheral nerve entrapment such as carpal tunnel syndrome (not uncommon for cts pain to travel up the arm), or even myofascial pain with trigger points. Would suggest physiatric evaluation for definitive diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
