I have neck pain and stiffness. I have tingling and numbness in hands and fingers and some tingling in buttocks area. I also struggle with anxiety/p attacks. Xrays show degen. In neck. What to do?

Your best bet: Is to review these issues with your primary care doctor. They could be anxiety related but may also be related to another process. A good formal neurologic evaluation is necessary to make sure further evaluation beyond the x-rays you report, if any other testing is warranted. Best of luck.

EMG: You will need a thorough exam by either a neurologist or pain physician. Emg study will help determine if it is from the low back or other nerves; sciatic, femoral, poly neuropathy). If possible, an MRI lumbar will help dtermione if the is a disc pushing on the nerves, in you case l5/s1. Also check piriformis muscle for tenderness and reproducible pain down the leg.

I have a tingling feeling (paresthesia) all over my body for 12 hours now. It's so bothersome I can't sleep. What is this?

I have a tingling feeling (paresthesia) all over my body for 12 hours now. It's so bothersome I can't sleep. What is this?

Number of things: However, at your age, may be related to either stress, hormones, or medications. You should get checked out just to be safe. Often, when we feel that tingle all over our body, like when you hear a great song, it is due to a release of neurotransmitters. However, without a physical exam and thorough history, it would be difficult to say what is causing sustained feeling.

I am diagnosed with pannic attacks, permanent pinky finger paresthesia, woke up at 2am with whole left side of body numb and tingling. Should I do ct?

Let Dr decide: Best clarify with your doctor numbness on one side is a concern but an examination would clarify if you need a ct. The finger numbness alone is likely a nerve compression at your elbow or wrist. Your dr can eval this to see if any studies are needed.

Occipital Neuralgia: Sounds like you might have this. I would consider icing the area and using anti-inflammatories to help. If it does not resolve you might see your doctor for a occipital nerve block with steroid.

Pain right below left tailbone down to buttock. Numbness and tingling too. Very uncomfortable. What is this?

Sciatica: The symptoms suggest sciatica (pain related to comression of the sciatic nerve). Therapy is directed at reduction of inflammation around the nerve and can involve the use of heat, antiinflammatory medication, physiotherapy, acupuncture and time. A medical exam and imaging of the area should be considered if pain persists. Rarely, surgery is indicated for intractable pain.

Sciatic nerve: Is probably being compressed a bit at the sciatic notch. You may need a bit more padding when seated on hard surfaces. (Sometimes it helps to just add a bit more muscle to the back side.) This is a common problem when people loose weight quickly. Gentle stretching of the hindquarters can help too.

Sciatica: Although there are some other possibilities like muscle spasm and pyriformis syndrome, the most likely cause is lumbar disc disease with nerve impingement. To be sure see a spine specialist or PMR doctor who can order neuroimaging and a test like an EMG. Then the next steps after making sure there is no vascular, immune or rheumatologic process would be to initiate PT & possibly meds or injection

Sciatic pain, top left buttock, hip & left side of body. Also tingling/numbness bottom of spine. Worst at night, hurts to move & just sitting down, help?

Ouch: sciatica (pain related to the course and distribution of the sciatic nerve), along with paresthesias (unusual sensations associated with sensory nerves) can be due to muscular inflammation, but might reflect ongoing damage to the nerve itself. Best to consult with your Primary Care practitioner for further evaluation and possibly imaging.

Why I have hypersensitivity in the back of my thigh (tingling/ prickling) feeling and also wet/ cold when I wear pants. Starts from buttock 2 knee?

Sciatica: 30's female with unilateral sciatica needs evaluation for cause of this neuralgia. Neural impingement might be occurring at lumbar foramena, sacroiliac joint or pyriformis muscle. An Osteopath would be a good specialist to evaluate. See comments below. There also needs to be evaluation for Joint Hypermobility Syndrome, which can potentiate evolution of sciatica.

What the heel is it.: Continuing to exercise at this point may inadvertently do further damage to the nerve involved. Would be best to get a evaluation to safeguard against prolonging your condition.

Buttock pain when sitting relieved by standing up. Also occasional tingling in testicles, I have job which makes me carry furniture, is it serious?

Buttock pain when sitting relieved by standing up. Also occasional tingling in testicles, I have job which makes me carry furniture, is it serious?

Lifting will flare: Your description seems consistent w/lumbar disc disease and radiating pain or sciatica.You should see a doctor if needed for a referral to a spine specialist as soon as possible.Imaging, such as MRI & nerve tests can provide a diagnosis & treatment options which might include nerve pain agents in addition to PT. If this fails injections or surgery may be considered. Heavy lifting can flare symptoms
