I have numbness and tingling in all 4 limbs usually only one side at a time we've ruled out cardiac, its prob. Not spinal I have 3 brain aneurysms?
Probably not: If your question is whether or not the numbness and tingling is related to the 3 aneurysms, that is very unlikely. However, there are the rare instances where a very large aneurysm can cause pressure on the brain that leads to symptoms like numbness.
