Shooting pain in my left arm. It shoots down into my hand then i can't move my hand and it gets numb. I also numb in left leg. Happens randomly
Arm numbness: This could be from a herniated cervical spine disc. Did you fall down face forward recently? Or any other injury? Get a proper evaluation soon.

I've had a numb feeling in my left arm today and now numbness in my arm and my left leg is much colder than rest of body. Advice?
Could be a nerve: You haven't mentioned any weakness or chest pain or not being able to move those extremities so I will assume those symptoms aren't present. In which case it could be that you have some inflammation or irritation of your peripheral nerves or possible swelling (edema) which is causing your symptoms. If your symptoms persist it would be good to discuss it with a doctor. ...Read more
I have numbness in my vaginal/buttock area and the numbness has now moved to my left arm/left leg, foot and some in my right foot.?
I twitched all over for a week. I feel like I have compressed nerves in left arm/hand and left leg. Now scalp is twitching 2" above left ear. Anxiety?
Twitching: The symptoms you have are very diffuse and do not correspond to any discrete neurological condition such as a stroke. Diffuse neurological symptoms can be seen with certain metabolic conditions such as kidney failure, infections, or liver disease. I doubt you have any of these and I suspect these symptoms could be due to anxiety. See your doctor for a complete work up. ...Read more

Maybe. See doc.: If this is an acute problem and she has never had it before she should have it evaluated urgently for stroke. However if her symptoms have been present for more than a few days and are not progressing, she should see her doc within a week or so. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
