Should your weaker side feel completely different than your dominant side? Sometimes my left side (arm and leg) feels weak and just weird all around.

Should your weaker side feel completely different than your dominant side? Sometimes my left side (arm and leg) feels weak and just weird all around.

Only slightly: U are right hand dominant so the left hand can feel clumsy and uncoordinated. Try to maximize your ability to use both hands. I never regretted learning to write with both right and left hands!! @Ambidexter ...Read more

+ana /ifa but c reactive proteine 0.18. Dizziness and right arm and leg become weak at the same time with lightheadedness. Clean MRI for tumors, MS, ?

Consider these: The paroxysmal episodes could be associated with epilepsy or migraine, and this needs to be considered. An eeg could be useful. Also, consider an underlying vascular cause, such as transient ischemic attacks. Does not appear you need to focus on tumors or ms>. ...Read more

Will doctor operate if both arm and legs are weak astrophy and wasting away even stomach muscle is weak do to a compressed spinal cord or pinch nerve?

Yes: If weakness is due to spinal cord compression, that compression must be relieved on an emergency basis to prevent paralysis. Surgery may be used for that.. I think there is essential information not being shared with us here. ...Read more

An 11 year old girl has acute onset of tingling and numbness together with decreased sensation in her right arm and leg. She became weak on same side?

Neurologist: She needs to be examined immediately by a pediatric neurologist. Tingling and numbness can be as simple as a pinched nerve although highly unlikely in a child that young. But motor weakness implies that she has both sensory and motor involvement. Please do take her right away. ...Read more

I feel my leg and arm weak interly but externly its working but soonly tiered. Its happen sometime in left limb and sometime in right. MRI ok. Why its?

Needs further eval: Many potential causes for arm/leg weakness. I assume you had MRI of the brain. Careful neuro exam needed, potentially MRI of cervical spine, EMG/NCV to assess muscle/nerve disorders, full laboratory panel of blood work and tests such as Lyme might be appropriate. Brain MRI only looks for some potential causes. The neuro exam is really important, and will direct the rest of the work-up. Good luck. ...Read more

In my case I'm 22, I have twitching n n jerking in some body muscle, left leg and arm feal weak on and off, could that mean ALS, what's the %?

In my case I'm 22, I have twitching n n jerking in some body muscle, left leg and arm feal weak on and off, could that mean ALS, what's the %?

<1% chance of ALS.: It is common for people to experience muscle twitching phenomena. Be healthy, eat right, exercise, & do not worry. In the early stages amyotrophic lateral sclerosis presents with increasing weakness in one limb, usually a hand. Fasciculations (twitching muscle fibers) are usually subtle. Then speech & swallowing difficulties are seen, as is difficulty walking. Still worried? Your MD can do a test. ...Read more

Can herbalife cause back, arm, leg & stomach pain, swollen & weak hands/arms and intermittent inability to move leg and arms after taking it 4 weeks?

Can herbalife cause back, arm, leg & stomach pain, swollen & weak hands/arms and intermittent inability to move leg and arms after taking it 4 weeks?

Maybe -- concerned: Herbalife is a multilevel marketing scheme providing pricey, non-evidence-based diet products and emotional support. I am more concerned about the spironolactone you are taking perhaps contributing to an electrolyte disturbance along with the diet plan. You need to get with your physician now, ask about bloodwork & more & discuss your diet plan, or the next muscle to fail may be your heart. ...Read more

Arms feel numb towards the top not the whole arm and legs feel weak they told me I have back arthritis could this be the cause?

Not the low back: Upper arm numbness can be related to the spine, but at the level of the neck.
Nerves exit the spinal canal through small holes. Arthritis in the bones of the neck can cause these holes to become smaller, thus possibly pinching the nerves as they exit. The pattern of numbness around the shoulders is much less common however.
Electrodiagnostic testing may be helpful. ...Read more
