Since the symptoms of a mini stroke I've be getting headaches and tingling /numbness on left side of head could this be related please am so scared!!!

Headaches are: unusual for stroke but tingling/numbness on one side of the head is definitely suspect. Though there are other things that could cause numbness tingling, such as atypical migraine or neuralgia/ facial nerve paralysis. Please check with your healthcare provider and get the help you need, but be calm and don't worry as much. ...Read more

Headache top left side radiating to left temple. Skin on top left tingling/sensation of heat. symptoms for 3 days.  Ache not constant; tingling/heat is. ?

Headache: There are many aspects that go into determining the cause of head pain. Is it new? Does it radiate from one area to another? What makes it better or worse? What is your response to medication? How severe is it? At your age, certain headache causes are more likely, such as migraine or cervicogenic pain (from disc or degenerative neck). You need to talk to a headache specialist. ...Read more

Depends: You did not say where the numbness ; tingling are. If worsening, spreading (arms, hands), or you have weakness (arms, hands), or trouble walking, go to your doctor, who can ask you more questions and examine you.

Past 2 months pain in left side of head base neck. Now I have random pain and numbness/tingling in arms and legs. What's wrong? Symptoms mimic MS

Past 2 months pain in left side of head base neck. Now I have random pain and numbness/tingling in arms and legs. What's wrong? Symptoms mimic MS

Explanation: Although MS can be a tough diagnosis due to vague symptoms, I would doubt your problems are caused by MS. Suggest you have an MRI of your neck, as that is most likely the anatomic location for your issues. Your head/neck pain could be c/w Occipital Neuralgia, and could consider problems in arms/legs due to peripheral neuropathy if neck films are benign. ...Read more

Are arm/leg tingling & dizziness esp in public places symptoms of acromegaly? No other issues like enlarged features, fatigue, oily skin, voice change

Are arm/leg tingling & dizziness esp in public places symptoms of acromegaly? No other issues like enlarged features, fatigue, oily skin, voice change

Why ask about zebras: B"sd conceivably, due to consequences of soft tissue enlargement. Unless there is some hidden genetic or polyendrocrine syndrome agenda, acromegally would not be among the first things most would think of. In any case a normal IGF-1 level can be relied on to eliminate the possiblity of excess growth hormone. ...Read more

I have a tingling in my head since Saturday.

Okay....: Unfortunately, your question is only the beginning, not the end. Hearing this, a doctor would then take a detailed history in an effort to construct a differential diagnosis. Your statement is so nonspecific that one can't even generate a list of possibilities. That's something that properly ought to take place in a doctor's office. ...Read more
