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?

Let Dr decide: Best clarify with your doctor numbness on one side is a concern but an examination would clarify if you need a ct. The finger numbness alone is likely a nerve compression at your elbow or wrist. Your dr can eval this to see if any studies are needed. ...Read more

When i touch the top of my foot, i have Paresthesia from there + first three toes + medial side. No pain. What could it be? Worth getting it checked?

O' Per-o-ne-iii....: It sounds as though you possibly, have caused some damage to a nerve in your leg. The nerve is called the common peroneal nerve. The areas you have paresthesia in, line up pretty well with the areas supplied by this nerve. Sometimes there can be a numbness up the outside of the leg towards the outside of the knee. Protecting the nerve and conservative may help, depending on the cause of course. ...Read more

Tingling in left heel of foot. Feels like I need to rub it all the time?

Few possibilities: This may be a nerve impingement of the medial calcaneal nerve or it can be a tarsal tunnel syndrome. There may be a plantar fascial component or it may be coming from a more proximal cause like a radiculopathy from the back. Depending on your foot structure, orthotics may be beneficial. Sometimes injection therapy may be helpful. ...Read more

Bottom of heel pops when go onto tiptoe.Feels like strumming of harp strings, followed by cold tingling sensation in heel & ankle. What can this be?

Bottom of heel pops when go onto tiptoe.Feels like strumming of harp strings, followed by cold tingling sensation in heel & ankle. What can this be?

Cord or Chord ??: The cold, tingling sensation of the heel and ankle is be caused by a temporary disruption of normal nerve impulses in a rather substantial nerve supplying the heel and ankle. The cause is no doubt from the harp string strumming and popping of one or more of the various, rather robust soft tissue elements located in that area of the foot. Start the evaluation by a seeing a specialist of foot/ankle. ...Read more

I have had a rhythmic tingling in my right heel for 2 days now. I don't notice it as much when I'm walking around but notice it when resting/sitting?

I have had a rhythmic tingling in my right heel for 2 days now. I don't notice it as much when I'm walking around but notice it when resting/sitting?

You've got Rhythm.: I would say the rhythmic pattern is caused by the hearts beating rhythm. The fact that you feel it's rhythm means that the heel is likely inflamed. The inflammation causes congestion and pressure on the nerves which makes the tingle. Elevate your feet, higher than your heart, if you can. You might need some better foot wear to take some shock off your heel. ...Read more

Why would I have a tingling/gripping type feeling in the inside part of my left heel/arch? Bothers me when I walk.

Why would I have a tingling/gripping type feeling in the inside part of my left heel/arch? Bothers me when I walk.

Nerve impingement : You probably have one of the following, tarsal tunnel syndrome, Lumbar raduculopathy (nerve pinching in spine), some kind of peripheral neuropathy, or maybe plantar fasciitis, or local sole of foot nerve entrapment. You should get an EMG/Nerve conduction study and a good neurological examination to distinguish. ...Read more
