Causes Of Lip Paresthesia
Gastroenteritis: It is tough to say but vomiting or diarrhea can lead to electrolyte imbalances such as hypokalemia which can in turn lead to muscle cramping. Oral parasthesias classically are associated with low calcium levels. Regardless, be sure to adequately hydrate yourself if unable to eat. ...Read more

Can perimenopause cause paresthesias which are felt on the face (tingling) & top of head (dripping)? If so, are there any treatments e.g. hormones?
Depends on the cause: The sensation of numbness of numbness and tingling may be 100% healed if the cause if it is one of the reversible causes of neuropathy such as hypothyroidism or Vitamin B12, D, or folate (folic acid) deficiency, due to medication side effects, etc. Otherwise, if the cause is unknown or known but not reversible then, perhaps not.

My 12y old son had ischemic strk (left) 10 mths ago with minor symptoms. Today he had Paresthesia in right side head for few secs. Should we consult Doc?
Yes: Those symptoms could be from the stroke or a new or worsening stroke problem. You should check with a doctor who saw him with the prior stroke. A stroke at his age usually has a specific cause. This could include an injury, an unusual shaped blood vessel on the brain or a disease. Ischemic stroke should not be the only diagnosis. ...Read more
I have a feeling on my head I can describe as paresthesia, it's been a chronic feeling I got suddenly after bumping my head to a wall. What can it be?
I'm having paresthesia in some parts of my head (it feels only at the skin of my head). Mostly it feels above the left ear, should I consult a doctor?
Yes, it could be neck: Sometimes a pain in the neck, better referred to as a pinched nerve, degenerative disc disease or cervical radiculopathy can cause paresthesias in the head. However, there could be a neurological basis as well and thus you should check with a Neurologist to make sure. ...Read more
What could be causing allover paresthesia head to toe? Any other autoimmune or other disorders other than MS? All blood work OK except iron anemia.
Sometimes we do not find a case of paresthesia throughout the body. It is not normally anemia, unless B12 deficiency is present.
To be absolutely thorough, you may have had these tests to find a cause:
1. blood & urine tests
2. nerve conduction studies
3. MRI studies
4. skin biopsy for small fiber neuropathy
If you haven't had these, that may be ok. Don't forget to discuss with your doctor. ...Read more
Symptoms are numbness around the nose and mouth and chest pains. Found that it could be linked to depression and paresthesia. Thoughts?
Are paresthesias along with loss of sensation in legs, burning in head a sign of a stroke? Can an MRI of brain detect previous strokes?
Paresthesia from head to toes started suddenly & muscle pain Had MRI for something else 2013 w/non-specific white matter Neuro said migraines not ms?
Complex: Cannot definitively say what is occurring but would certainly wonder whether you are experiencing a medication reaction, or a problem within your neck. The neurologist probably was correct about the original MRI, but now you might be helped by a cervical MRI study. Perhaps a followup with your prior doctor?? ...Read more
If you have a vitamin deficiency will it cause head parethesia or a head tingling sensation? If so what vitamin would you be deficient in?
Vitamin deficiency can cause neuropathy not particularly head tingling or paresthesia. Usually b12 and folic acid are reported with neuropathy symptoms.

Can MS cause you to feel like you're choking? Happens mostly when sleeping but also when not. Also have parethesia in legs, arms, face & head.
Choking during sleep:
Choking during sleep may most often be due to gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) or sleep apnea. Neither of these is generally related to MS.
In some cases, MS affects swallowing, but this is not common, and would not be the first cause to consider, based on your symptoms.
Paresthesia is a tough symptom. Neuropathy commonly causes this, but not normally in the head. ...Read more
Could a c4-c5 &c5c6 disc herniation cause parethesia in face, head arms and legs? What is treatment for this?
Arms and legs, maybe: The head and face are innervated by nerves that exit the skull directly, and do not course through the spine. For this reason, head and facial parasthesias could not be caused by disc herniations. Disc herniations can cause nerve compression which could lead to arm symptoms, and spinal cord compression which could lead to arm and leg symptoms. You should see a spine surgeon to discus treatment. ...Read more
What could cause parethesia of the head, face, neck and left arm and leg? Ct/mri of the brain are normal. Cymbalta or nucynta (tapentadol) cause this? It's been constant for 3 weeks!
Two possibilities: Paresthesia can result from trauma to the nerves serving the affected area. If there is something putting pressure on the nerve, sometimes removal of the offending object can relieve the paresthesia. Other times, the cause of the paresthesia may not be evident and may be the result of just disturbing the nerve (eg. Nearby extraction). In such cases, the passage of time will usually relieve the it. ...Read more
