Pain in my left arm and left leg in the evening after work and after i get up in the morning. Feeling tired in the mornings. How can this go away?

1st Rule out angina!: I'd have your internist evaluate you for the possibility of angina. Sometimes the narrowing of coronary arteries, from whatever reason, can lead to ischemia of heart muscle and a diffuse, difficult-to-pinpoint, aching pain can radiate in this distribution. The risk of this goes up with a positive family history for heart disease, or if you have elevated cholesterol or triglyceride; then proceed... ...Read more

The most accepted theory that when peripheral nerves are damaged, alpha 1 (and possibly alpha 2) receptors may be up-regulated on afferent (sensory) neurons. ...Read more

Getting random chills on left arm and left leg. No fever and not sick?

Doctor can evaluate: If strange sensations like chills are recurrent and only on one arm, one leg, or one section of the body, one can be evaluated by her primary care doctor.

Hi I am getting really bad pain and numbness in my left arm and left leg and my face and it's causing me to have anxiety what could the pain be?

Evaluate Neck: If you are not improving have your doctor order a cervical spine mri. Many times a herniated disc in the neck can cause arm pain especially if you have not improved with the medications and physical therapy. If it is a herniated disc you may need evaluation from a spine specialist to determine what other options might be needed (injections, surgery, etc) to help reduce pain. ...Read more

Is an aching left arm and left leg a sign of peripheral neuropathy, hiv, carpal tunnel or pinched nerve?

Is an aching left arm and left leg a sign of peripheral neuropathy, hiv, carpal tunnel or pinched nerve?

Depends: This can be a systemic disease process (neuropathy, hiv) affecting multiple nerves at once. Carpal tunnel affect the hand specifically, not the arm.
