I have severe nerve pain and the feeling of fluid running in my head, arms, and legs occasionally. What could be the cause?

What do : You mean by nerve pain? Pins, needles, tingling, shooting pain? Your description is not common at all. I have never heard description like that. Assuming your brain/neck MRI are normal, would consider your issue related to psyche/side-effects of your medicine rather than something anatomically wrong. Stick with your medicine and see if your neurologist/psychiatrist can suggest a cause. ...Read more

Feeling very weak/drained and tired after workout. After I got done I had weakness in my arms and legs. And felt tired. What causes this?

Workout fatigue: Fatigue after working out is not that uncommon. However, it should not be such that you can not function. Be sure to stretch before and after working out; be sure you are getting 6-8 hours of sleep; be sure to get plenty of protein. I prefer Premier Protein after I do P90X3 or Body Beast. ...Read more

Does body heat feeling from chest, arms and legs comes in the start of zoloft (sertraline) 100mg in morning and 100mg in evening.

Discuss w/ your dr.: Sometimes this could be an effect of a drug interaction. If you experience other symptoms such as headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, sweating, tremors, palpitations, elevated blood pressure or restlessness see your physician. This could be a sign of too much serotonin in your system. You may benefit from adjustments to your medicine regimen including a lower dose of Zoloft (sertraline). ...Read more

I am feeling repeated muscles tighten, spasm and relax when sleeping. Felt most in sides, arms and legs. No hx of epilep, interaction between meds?

I am feeling repeated muscles tighten, spasm and relax when sleeping. Felt most in sides, arms and legs. No hx of epilep,  interaction between meds?

Hypnagogic jerk: A sudden muscle twitch while falling asleep is very common, and is called a hypnagogic jerk. There is a theory that this is a leftover reflex; a primate falling asleep whose muscles relax too much might fall out of a tree, and so we wake up to grab a limb. Drug interactions can cause or worsen lots of issues, and to help you figure that out would require a detailed history (including which meds?) ...Read more

Do you take any medicine? do you have any medical condition? do you get dehydrated?And regarding cough that is altogether different problem- do you smoke? do you have Asthma.

I had a steroid shot for an URI and the next morning I am feeling tingling in the arms and legs?

I had a steroid shot for an URI and the next morning I am feeling tingling in the arms and legs?

Hyperventilation?: First, steroid shot should not be used for an URI since it does nothing good but possibly harm to the body. I suspect that you may already have an anxiety problem which exacerbated by the steroid injection leading to hyperventilation and the numbness. If the problem persists for more than 3-4 days or gets worse, contact your doctor . ...Read more

I quit taking buspirone few months back because of a stiff feeling in my cheek. I have tremors in my arms and legs could it be parkinsons?

See your physician: Buspirone can cause Parkinson-like symptoms including tremors, muscle weakness, shuffling gait, stooped posture, drooling, etc. Tremors can be for any number of reasons and are less likely due to Parkinson's in young patients. See your primary care physician for evaluation of the tremors. You might be referred to a neurologist. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/tremor.html ...Read more
