Had eviked potentials done for numbness and tingling rt foot an. Result. 2.5to 3 is that abnorm. Al?

See below: Guess I am confused, as to why you would have your symptoms tested by evoked potential study which is basically worthless if you have a peripheral nerve problem. (although may help diagnose a spinal cord problem). The more appropriate test could be an EMG nerve conduction study. I think you need to sit down with your doctor and ask some direct questions. Sorry, but that's my thinking, so far.

My name is pat adams. I'm 47 years old and I'm experiencing numbness and tingling on my right side, arm, leg and foot as well.?

Pat: Visit your internist and let them examine you. I wonder if you have any back pain? Certainly, don't wait for this to get worse, an entire extremity is already a large area that likely should of been investigated already.

After a 15 hour flight to Australia the skin on the shin and top of my foot has numbness and tingling. Now ongoing for 2 weeks. Cause for concern?

Shin: The biggest concern would be that the long flight resulted in a blood clot in your leg. Most people get swelling and pain with that but your description could be that. Go see a doctor to get evaluated.

For twos days I've had slight numbness and tingling in the arch of my left foot, and slightly blurred vision. Now I have a small bump on my calf. Bad?

For twos days I've had slight numbness and tingling in the arch of my left foot, and slightly blurred vision. Now I have a small bump on my calf. Bad?

Be seen: It is really hard to say without the benefit if an exam and things, there are multiple causes from benign to more serious. I would be seen with particular attention to the complaint of blurring of your vision, which in general is not a normal complaint and can be seen in serious neurological conditions as it's first presentation; ms being one example.

Sharp pain in foot when I stood up, radiating pain in upper thigh simultanesouly, feet/hand numbness and tingling, pinched nerve?

Sharp pain in foot when I stood up, radiating pain in upper thigh simultanesouly, feet/hand numbness and tingling, pinched nerve?

Confusing: The only place all those areas have a common nerve serving them is the neck. This would be very unusual. Ypou should see your doc soon. Those are sx of multiple sclerosis.

5 days post-op TKA. Numbness and tingling in lower leg, calf, and foot. Weakness in both hands. Slight dizziness when sitting or standing too long.

See your doctor: That is not normal. There can be a variety of causes-both serious and not. There is no way we could diagnose you in this setting. You need to talk to your doctor right away...

How likely am I to be diagnosed with ms? I originally went to the doctor for numbness and tingling in my hand and foot and have gotten severe pain in my opposite arm and hip on two occasions. One white spot was found on my brain mri, minor degenerative c

Hard to say: One white spot on brain MRI is nonspecific. If it is in a particular area (corpus callosum) it would be more concerning, otherwise it could have been from prior brain infection (encephalitis) or trauma (shearing injury). Your symptoms are a bit more worrisome. Perhaps a spinal fluid analysis will help. Neurology consult would be useful.

I experience numbness and tingling pain in my toes when my feet get cold (had untreated frostbite 40 years ago. Is there anything I can do for this?

I experience numbness and tingling pain in my toes when my feet get cold (had untreated frostbite 40 years ago. Is there anything I can do for this?

You may speak to: Your pcp regarding calcium channel blockers or topical nitropaste or possibly even viagra (sildenafil) (seriously) or another long acting nitrate. Avoid caffeine, smoking and get some warm socks (seriously) make sure you do not also have new onset of diabetes and peripheral neuropathy due to that or another issues such as thyroid disease or some neurological issue you are blaming it all on frostbite.

My big toe on my rt foot is numb and I have tingling in my foot. What is that a symptom of?

Nerve issue: Burning, tingling and numbness are all symptoms of a nerve problem. This could be a pinched nerve in the lower back, tarsal tunnel syndrome, or a number of other reasons. Most of which involve something pressing on a nerve.

MRI shows small herniation on l5s1, mass effect on s1. Numbness and pain are l5 dermatoes, eg big toe numbness, is this common?

MRI shows small herniation on l5s1, mass effect on s1. Numbness and pain are l5 dermatoes, eg big toe numbness, is this common?

Complex: First you have MRI demonstration of S-1 compression, but you say your symptoms are at L-5, which raises question in my mind of an additional disc fragment affecting this nerve root. The complexities may affect a conservative approach to your problems, and surgery may be needed. Get opinion from spinal surgeon.

I am experiencing foot numbness and burning sensation. My plantar nerve was removed. Should half of my big toe be numb?

I am experiencing foot numbness and burning sensation. My plantar nerve was removed. Should half of my big toe be numb?

Unclear: Not sure why you had either/both of your plantar nerves removed - nor any past history of relevant diseases associated with a neuropathy. The innervation of the top of the foot and the bottom are different, and the lack of plantar nerve (s) make it more complex. Please consult your doctor who can sort through all of these issues to localize the issue and additional tests to define it better.
