Could facial paresthesia 3-6x month lasts 1-2 days, cheeks-chin be related to the ai diseases sle, mctd, sclero or dm? I am being tested for these.

Yes: Despite your profuse use of acronyms (which fortunately I am able to decode) the answer is definitely yes. Sarcoidosis frequently causes facial sensory changes but so do other connective tissue disorders as well as diabetes. Continue your work-up. On occasion facial nerve conduction tests can be helpful. Mri scan for brainstem-related pathology should be considered. ...Read more

What to do if I have mild paresthesia will a novocaine shot make it worse?

What to do if I have mild paresthesia will a novocaine shot make it worse?

Paresthesia and shot: It depends where your paresthesia is and where the novocaine shot will be. If your paresthesia is localized to a specific area and the shot will be in a different area of the body, then the chances are that the paresthesia will probably not get worse temporarily. If the paresthesia and shot are in the same area, then there will be an increase in the numbness in that area for a few hours. ...Read more

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.

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 more

Cold shoulder pain, sleep paralysis, myoclonus, tmjd, hypoglycemia, voice hoarseness, numbness in neck, paresthesia in face (electrical) and body?

Long menu: You have a long menu of symptoms. I would recommend you see a neurologist who specializes in sleep disorders as well and that you also see an endocrinologist. Together they be able to piece together what's going on. The help of an ear nose and throat specialist may also be required. 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 more

Get checked.: The first step is to get a good history and physical, with appropriate lab work. Stop alcohol and drug use. Avoid supplements other than a basic vitamin. If you are any new meds, check with your doc and see if is had side effects like this. If that is all negative, this may be due to depression which can present atypically in this way.
