Forearm Paresthesia Tingling
I have a tingling feeling (paresthesia) all over my body for 12 hours now. It's so bothersome I can't sleep. What is this?
Can perimenopause cause paresthesias which are felt on the face (tingling) & top of head (dripping)? If so, are there any treatments e.g. hormones?
I am diagnosed with pannic attacks, permanent pinky finger paresthesia, woke up at 2am with whole left side of body numb and tingling. Should I do ct?
Left arm paresthesia: There are many possible causes, ranging from blood vessel compression, nerve compression, brachial plexus compression, spinal cord problems, various brain lesions such as tumors, decreased blood supply, or partial seizures. More information is needed. More detail on what part of the arm, for how long, under what conditions, etc. I suggest you consult your family doctor or a neurologist. ...Read more

Pain on left arm and left shoulder associated with muscle weakness, limited rom and paresthesia with occasional muscle twitching.
What would cause paresthesia in right face/arm when massaging ache in top neck/skull base? No news back from spine X-ray last week. Should I worry about aneurysm/tumors? Always achy. Dr says anxiety.
Likely but maybe not: Neurologically, it wouldn't happen. A rare form of thoracic outlet syndrome could cause the hand symptoms. This can be tested for in the office by your doctor. Nerves to the right face do not run through the neck. Spine xrays will not be helpful. A careful neurologic exam of the affected hand and face during the symptoms will tell the tale clear enough. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Please resubmit: & include a specific question.Get a more detailed answer ›
I can't do things like cross arms, legs, comb hair, hold phone, push ups w/out some form of paresthesia. How is that anxiety? Xanax doesn't stop it. I'm not panicking. I have popping in hand, shoulder blade that shoots pins and needles down arm.
Anxiety or medical?: A diagnosis of anxiety as a cause of physical symptoms can only be made when medical causes have been ruled out. Suggest you see your pcp for an evaluation of paresthesias. That said, anxiety can cause numerous physical symptoms even without conscious panicky thoughts because of the body's response to an adrenaline surge via the "fight or flight" reaction. I hope this helps. Best wishes. ...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 moreSee 10 more doctor answers

Occipital Neuralgia: Sounds like you might have this. I would consider icing the area and using anti-inflammatories to help. If it does not resolve you might see your doctor for a occipital nerve block with steroid. ...Read more
See below: A tingling sensation is usually associated with irritated or sensitive nerves. While veins due have nerves very close to them, they do not typically cause 'tingling'. That said, varicosed veins can cause restlessness (restless leg syndrome), which at times is described as feeling like 'something is moving under the skin'-not tingling but similar sensation? That may be due to inflammation... ...Read more
I'm experiencing a tickling (not tingling) sensation in both of my upper forearms / biceps since yesterday. Gradual onset. No pain or other symptoms.
Hmmmm.....: I think we will need a bit more information if you have any in order to help. It certainly doesn't sound like an emergency at this point. The fact that it is both forearms is a bit odd. So long as you do not have any muscle weakness I think careful observation for the next few days should help glean more information. Let us know. ...Read more
