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.

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?
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

35 yr-old started with paresthesias 4 yrs ago, that generalized to include autonomic symptoms and gastroparesis, looking for effective treatment.....?
Neuro exam?: Interesting case, but I'd like to know about her neuro exam. By the history, her symptoms haven't progressed in a length-dependent manner (especially given the facial sensory involvement) and this points me toward a sensory neuronopathy aka sensory ganglionopathy. These patients would be expected to have proprioceptive impairment-- if she is still a dance instructor, I doubt her proprioception is impaired. If her neuro exam and nerve conduction study are truly normal, I suspect any additional testing will be normal as well. ...Read more
