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

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

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

Do neurologist immediately do surgery if they see that a pinch nerve cause your arm and leg muscles to be weak and wasting away.

Do neurologist immediately do surgery if they see that a pinch nerve cause your arm and leg muscles to be weak and wasting away.

No: A neurologist is not a surgeon. A neurosurgeon or a spine surgeon would be the specialties that would operate on a spinal nerve that is being compressed. Certainly if you have significant weakness or numbness surgery becomes a very real option. Please follow up with the appropriate doctors as necessary ...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
