Had shot of dextrose (prolotherapy) in my achilles' tendon 3hrs ago & my heel & bottom back half of my foot is numb still. Should it be still numb?

Maybe: The injection could have also contained a local anesthetic, which can last anywhere between 2 to 12 hours. There is a small chance that a nerve was bruised during the injection as well, which could cause some numbness. Either way, it should return to normal after some time.

Utterly unclear: Do you mean your Achilles t e n d o n? One or both? What does "bothering" mean? How long is a while? Tingling and numbness where? When was "today"? Your post suffers from a dearth of detail and a paucity of specificity. Please repost.

The: The primary symptoms of multiple sclerosis are caused by inflammation in the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord). This inflammation usually causes damage to the outer, insulating part of nerve fibers called myelin, and can sometimes damage the fiber (or "axon") too. The symptoms of multiple sclerosis overlap with a number of other neurological, medical and psychiatric conditions. Multiple sclerosis can cause a number of symptoms, including vision loss, incoordination, weakness, and numbness, just to name a few. Usually these symptoms do not occur all at once, but affect different functions of different parts of the body at different times.

TOO V CERVICAL DISC: SX are suggest cervical disc disease vs TOO (THORACIC OUTLET OBSTRUCTION)When you cough, sneeze or hiccup, you increase intrathoracic pressure and flare pain. Please see your doctor and get an MRI of the cervical spine and MRA of RUE to evaluate both conditions. The 2 can overlap and a NEURO CONSULT for EMG (ELECTROMYELOGRAM) may be needed.

It could be the result of putting something directly on the lips that interacts and causes irritation.

Please explain what does a feeling of numbness and tingling in my left finger tips means?

Please explain what does a feeling of numbness and tingling in my left finger tips means?

See neurologist: It depends which finger and what brings the tingling on...If it is the 2nd, 3rd digit numbness, it may be carpal tunnel or ulanr neuropathy if the 4th and fifth... It may come from a pinched nerve in the neck if you shooting pains from the neck down to a specific area. Or it may be from a more spreadout proces involving damage to the nerve endings. Best to see neurologist.

My shoulders tacoed inward causing extreme pain, numbness, and tingling. My back between the shoulder blades is the same story.

Muscular pain: Tension myositis or simple muscle tightness/cramping most likely. See primary care doc. If not happy, may need cervical spine MRI to rule out an underlying spine condition. Heat applcations, massage, and isometric muscle strengthening may ameliorate the symptoms.

I've had a numbness and tingling on the left side of my face and head and every once in a while I get a cold sensation on the same side?

Several reasons: Your symptoms suggest possible bells palsy presentations which is temporary to something more ominous like a a small stroke, multiple sclerosis, or a brain mass. You should see your primary care doc right away for the proper evaluation, and if he /she is uncomfortable, they will refer you to a neurologist.

What could be causing finger numbness and tingling?

nerve compression: The most common cause of numbness and tingling in hands in otherwise healthy individuals is nerve compression. The most common type of nerve compression is carpal tunnel syndrome.
