Should I be worried about a neuroepthial cyst located in the left choroid fissure region with numbness and tingling on left side.

Should I be worried about a neuroepthial cyst located in the left choroid fissure region with numbness and tingling on left side.

Choroid cyst: No. A choroid plexus or neuroepithelial cyst is a benign mass. A cyst has to be large enough to put pressure on the surrounding brain. Also, a left-sided cyst would cause symptoms on the right side of the brain. A left-sided cyst would not cause left-sided symptoms.

I have numbness and tingling in my whole left side of body (under investigation) but why are these areas more painful to touch?

Why indeed: Whatever is causing the numbness & tingling is also causing the painful sensation. The sense of touch is multimodality & of mind-mangling complexity. When you say the areas are "more painful, " do you mean allodynia, hyperpathia, dysesthesia or hyperalgesia? (The idea is now for you to look up those terms and try to determine which 1 (or more) applies to you.)

Have severe back spasms with left leg numbness and tingling and pain, what causes this, also left leg sometimes gives out.

Pinched nerve: Your symptoms, in particular the left leg numbness/tingling/pain/weakness, strongly suggest a pinched nerve in your lumbar spine. If your symptoms are progressively worsening, you may even need surgery. See a physician for further evaluation and treatment options.

I have a pea sized lymph node (i believe) in my middle neck that won't go away. I have had numbness and tingling unilaterally to the left side. No ms?

I have a pea sized lymph node (i believe) in my middle neck that won't go away. I have had numbness and tingling unilaterally to the left side. No ms?

Not my diagnosis: Lots of reasons for left sided tingling and numbness, and could be problem in neck or even peripheral nerves. The lesion in your neck could be a sebaceous cyst. Have your doctor evaluate these additional concerns, but so far, no issue to have concern about ms.

I have numbness and tingling in my left thigh and it feels like a rubber band is around my left groin which is worse during menstration. Caused by?

I have numbness and tingling in my left thigh and it feels like a rubber band is around my left groin which is worse during menstration. Caused by?

I would guess this is coming from your back.: The nerve supply for these areas comes out of the low back. You can be worse during your menstrual cycle because of the extra fluid and pelvic congestion will add pressure to the nerves. Sometimes the tingling on the thigh is specific to a nerve called the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve. It is fairly common with tight clothes or people employed that lean against the counter or have a heavy toolbelt. If it's really bothering you a lot you should go see your doctor and get checked out for the possibility of a lumbar disc.

I have a dull aching pain in my lower back (left side) I have numbness and tingling in my left thigh down to my knee.?

I have a dull aching pain in my lower back (left side) I have numbness and tingling in my left thigh down to my knee.?

Unpinch the nerve.: Sounds like you have a disk herniation. As long as the pain is tolerable, and you do not have progressive increasing weakness, or lose the ability to control the bladder or bowels, the vast majority of disk herniations can be treated without surgery. I recommend you get a good exam by a spine specialist, then follow instructions on use of medications, stretchs and activities modifications.

Amitriptyline safe and effective for preventing hemiplegic migraines? I get slight numbness and tingling left side and headaches. Past 2yrs on and off

Amitriptyline safe and effective for preventing hemiplegic migraines? I get slight numbness and tingling left side and headaches. Past 2yrs on and off

Comments: Truthfully, due to bad anticholinergic side effects, I no longer use amitryptyline in any of my patients. Would prefer OTC items, such as riboflavin, butterbur, CoQ-10 magnesium or feverfew. Most neurologists can help with this. If it must be prescription, choose Depakote or Topamax (topiramate). Botox, maybe?

Is weird numbness and tingling on the left side of your left hand a symptom of impending heart attack?

Is weird numbness and tingling on the left side of your left hand a symptom of impending heart attack?

Probably not: Arm pain that radiates (travels to) the hand and particularly the fingers is usually not heart related, but more likely to be a pinched nerve in the neck. The is referred to as as cervical neuropahy, if it comes from the spine, or brachial neuropathy, if it comes from lower down. I've seem this happen if someone leans heavily on crutches they have been using for a sprained knee.
