I have been getting pins and needles down my right arm for 2 weeks now an it's now aching too also today a sudden onset in my right leg it feels like?
Neurologist: If the parasthesiae and aching were localised to the arm, I would suspect a nerve entrapment or compression by a cervical bulging disc or vertebral spur. However with leg involvement, I'm concerned about a possible left cerebral cortex disorder or even a left carotid artery blockage. I strongly recommend a consultation with a neurologist for diagnosis. Appropriate tests will be ordered. ...Read more
