Bilateral Hand Paresthesias
What diseases cause hand paresthesia and swelling (in the MS mimic) catagory? I've been having a lot of symptoms that are classic MS symptoms but have not been diagnosed. My brain MRI without contrast was normal. One neurologist sd it was anxiety and to s
Some of the options:
Cervical radiculopathy, transverse myelopathy, ulnar / radial / median nerve impingement (incl carpal tunnel syndome), brachial plexopathy, peripheral neuropathy (there are many causes), and vascular disorders, such as calciphylaxis.

Shoulder pain. Onset 2.5 wks ago. Paresthesia down R arm to hand, muscle spasms under scapula. Local MD states tight trap? Pain not controlled w/ OTC
Please resubmit: & include a specific question.Get a more detailed answer ›
I can't do things like cross arms, legs, comb hair, hold phone, push ups w/out some form of paresthesia. How is that anxiety? Xanax doesn't stop it. I'm not panicking. I have popping in hand, shoulder blade that shoots pins and needles down arm.
Anxiety or medical?: A diagnosis of anxiety as a cause of physical symptoms can only be made when medical causes have been ruled out. Suggest you see your pcp for an evaluation of paresthesias. That said, anxiety can cause numerous physical symptoms even without conscious panicky thoughts because of the body's response to an adrenaline surge via the "fight or flight" reaction. I hope this helps. Best wishes. ...Read more

Or "Golfer's Elbow" can be due to blunt trauma! This usually does not affect the ulnar nerve itself (its actually medial to the nerve) A CORTISONE INJECTION may be indicated! Ask your PCP (Primary Care Provider for a referral to an Orthopedist!

Paresthesias of the hands and feet are common, transient symptoms of the related conditions of hyperventilation syndrome, often open mouth, and panic attacks.
Other common examples occur when sustained pressure has been applied over a nerve. Inhibiting/stimulating its function. Removing the pressure will typically result in gradual relief of these paresthesias. Use Motrin with food. ...Read more

I've been dealing with SIBO and HNPP like symptoms since I was 20. Started taking glycogen supp. For exercise and it lessened my paresthesia symptoms?
Find good holist: Fad diagnoses like "SIBO" do people a disservice -- most of the medical community doubts that they are prevalent as their proponents claim, and have you noticed that nobody ever gets better?
