Tremors: With these symptoms you need to see a good diagnostician and I would start with my family doctor. He will probably start with a complete blood panel and exclude all metabolic disease. If this is all normal that he will be able to send you to the appropiate specialist to treat your condition. Do not try to self diagnose. ...Read more

What is neuropathy and can it be cured? Dizziness, very disoriented. Tingling hands, fingers, feet, and also swelling, water retention, feels like I'm drunk cannot walk straight, very much afraid of falling, I feel like I'm tilting more to one side.

"Neuropathy": "neuropathy" as a term is usually used to describe or label diseases of the peripheral nerves, so it is also often called "peripheral neuropathy" to emphasize that this is not a term to use to describe diseases of the brain or spinal cord. There are many types of peripheral neuropathy, and several ways to classify them, based on whether the major systems involved are those which provide nervous system input to muscles (motor neuropathies), those that are involved in sensation such as touch, pressure, heat, cold, pain, etc (sensory neuropathies), or those that are involved in control of involunatry functions such as maintenance of blood pressure, sweating, and bowel and bladder function. There are mixed neuropathies, pure motor neuropathies, pure sensory neuropathies, etc. Equally, there are classifications by cause (etiology), such as diabetic neuropathy (which is usually a sensory neuropathy but may involve motor problems or autonomic problems in some patients) or ischemic neuropathy (neuropathy caused by insufficient blood supply to some nerves).

Some neuropathies have a genetic basis, others are acquired. Some are due to other diseases involving nerve secondarily, such as diseases in which the immune system attacks blood vessels, producing vasculitis, which then can produce ischemic neuropathy in the affected nerves. This often produces a clinical pattern called "mononeuropathy multiplex", meaning multiple nerves are involved one at at time with no pattern, whereas a lot of other types of neuropathy as I have described above are "polyneuropathies", involving multiple nerves usually in symmetric patterns, such as in what is called a "stocking and glove" distribution.

So the causes are different, and some are identifiable and curable, others are not curable but are treatable, and some are difficult to treat. So this is a long answer to your main question about "what is neuropathy".

Some of what you describe could be a peripheral polyneuropathy: tingling sensations in your hands and feet, feeling "drunk" which may mean your sense of where you are in space is not working well, leading to a feeling that you may fall. However as dr krob suggested "dizziness", swelling and water retention, and disorientation are not commonly associated with neuropathy and could suggest that you have a serious medical condition which needs prompt evaluation and treatment. Some of these might also cause neuropathy; so, to pick just one possibility (not to say you have this), there are diseases called "collagen vascular diseases" such as lupus which may damage the kidneys, producing water retention, swelling of the legs, feet, and hands, and this may also affect nerves by causing vasculitis, giving you the tingling and perhaps also the "feeling like I'm drunk". So see a physician, very soon. ...Read more

Sob, dizzy, feet & hands tingling, bronchitis x 2 weeks ago. Urgent care last night said viral, pericarditis. Neck pain, feel faint. Albut barely helps?

You're ill: Viral illnesses must run their course. You're acutely ill right now. Go to bed. Drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated and raise your BP (low BP is contributing to your weak, dizzy, faint feeling). Eat salty foods. Rest. Be patient. If not improving in 5 days, be re-evaluated. You would do well to establish a relationship with a family doc and not use urgent care so you have continuity of care. ...Read more

Tingling in hands, arms, legs, and feet. Get nauseous, sick, light headed and dizzy feelings in mornings and in stomache mostly in the mornings.?

Concerning symptoms: The symptoms you describe are very concerning and can be many things. With the nausea and stomachache in the morning, I'm wondering if you're having gastritis or peptic ulcer disease. That doesn't often cause tingling hands, arms and legs, so more investigation is needed. If you haven't had a checkup with a doctor in a while, now's the time! Best of luck! ...Read more

Tight chest, heart pound so fast, left arm feels tingling, dizzy, cold hand and feet, sweating, suddenly stiff at neck & shoulder. Heart attack or anxiety?

Uncertain: You are a 30 year old female - don't know if you have any risk factors for a heart attack. However, if you have never had a medical workup and had medical causes ruled out than having it assessed is prudent. It may be a panic attack but we can't diagnose it. ...Read more

Numb/tingling in hands, legs, and feet on both sides. Muscle spasms in legs, back and arms. Loss of balance, dizzy, stiff. Is it Neuropathy or ms?

Bad choices: You probably don't need or want to pick A or B. Both require a doctor's DX and TX and it might be another thing altogether. A common cause of neuropathy is a diabetic condition w/ other signs too - are you a diabetic? Get into care if 'yes'! MS usually starts a bit later in age. Have an exam to find an answer.

I did my first yoga session and had tingling, numbess and pain in my hands. Also a bit dizzy and a headache after. Is this normal? What could be cause?

Let ur teacher know: Numbness, tingling, and pain are not commonly associated with yoga. In fact, yoga is supposed to be pain-free, enjoyable, and relaxing. So you need to let your teacher know. So this doesn't happen again during your next class. Also the postures you might have done may have pinched a nerve, or created some type of discomfort from your neck down to your hand. If this persists, it's best to see your family dr. For medical advice. ...Read more
