Feeling numbness/tingling right side of face& body for almost a day. What can be causing this? I felt a pinch on right arm when it started.

Need to see Dr.: You are young, so this is reassuring. However, when your face is involved, it suggests that you are having something happening in your brain, not in your neck as could cause just arm tingling. Ever had migraines? Sometimes you can have other migraine symptoms without pain. The worrisome concern would be a stroke or other spot in the brain. You need to have an exam and maybe a brain scan.

I have numbness and tingling in my whole left side of body (under investigation) but why are these areas more painful to touch?

I have numbness and tingling in my whole left side of body (under investigation) but why are these areas more painful to touch?

Why indeed: Whatever is causing the numbness & tingling is also causing the painful sensation. The sense of touch is multimodality & of mind-mangling complexity. When you say the areas are "more painful, " do you mean allodynia, hyperpathia, dysesthesia or hyperalgesia? (The idea is now for you to look up those terms and try to determine which 1 (or more) applies to you.)

I have being feeling numbness and tingling on my whole right side what can this be.....?

Many things: While these symptoms are usually self limited and inconsequential, if these persist more than a week or so, with your young age, see your family md for evaluation. It would be best to figure it out early rather than late. Whether these are symptoms from the brain, spinal cord, or peripheral nerves, you will need some workup if they don't go away.

I get numbness and tingling over diff parts of my body if I have been in the same position for more that 5 mins, it immediately disappears when I move?

Parasthesias: Can occur with even minor compression of cutaneous nerves if the nerves are susceptible due to underlying neuropathy or tissue swelling. If this persist tell your doctor (will assess you with a neurological exam and order some labs or an EMG- nerve conduction study)

Numbness and tingling on left side of face?

Numbness tingling: Impossible to say without more information. However if it has persisted greater than 2 weeks, it should be evaluated. Could be anything from a temporary viral inflammation to ms, to a brain tumor.

Need 2nd opinion. I have numbness and tingling throughout body. What could cause it? I do have back problems. Could that cause it?

Need 2nd opinion. I have numbness and tingling throughout body. What could cause it? I do have back problems. Could that cause it?

Not low back: An anatomical explanation of numbness throughout body could be attributable to to a process in the brain or upper cervical spine area. Alternatively, it could have a nonanatomic basis.

I have been having a lot of numbness and tingling episodes through whole body mostly middle off back up to neck. Help no insurance. Thanks?

Medical workup: These sensations appear to be muscular in origin and can be seen in a variety of conditions e.g. Chiari malformation, dermatomyositis, tension myositis, psycho-social stress, depression, suppressed anger, post traumatic stress disorder, spinal deformity, spinal cord tumors, the list goes on. If symptoms persist see your primary care physician for a medical workup.

I've had a numbness and tingling on the left side of my face and head and every once in a while I get a cold sensation on the same side?

Several reasons: Your symptoms suggest possible bells palsy presentations which is temporary to something more ominous like a a small stroke, multiple sclerosis, or a brain mass. You should see your primary care doc right away for the proper evaluation, and if he /she is uncomfortable, they will refer you to a neurologist.

Should I be worried about a neuroepthial cyst located in the left choroid fissure region with numbness and tingling on left side.

Should I be worried about a neuroepthial cyst located in the left choroid fissure region with numbness and tingling on left side.

Choroid cyst: No. A choroid plexus or neuroepithelial cyst is a benign mass. A cyst has to be large enough to put pressure on the surrounding brain. Also, a left-sided cyst would cause symptoms on the right side of the brain. A left-sided cyst would not cause left-sided symptoms.

I have a pea sized lymph node (i believe) in my middle neck that won't go away. I have had numbness and tingling unilaterally to the left side. No ms?

I have a pea sized lymph node (i believe) in my middle neck that won't go away. I have had numbness and tingling unilaterally to the left side. No ms?

Not my diagnosis: Lots of reasons for left sided tingling and numbness, and could be problem in neck or even peripheral nerves. The lesion in your neck could be a sebaceous cyst. Have your doctor evaluate these additional concerns, but so far, no issue to have concern about ms.

Can numbness and tingling in the whole body be the only ssymptom of brain tumor?

Can numbness and tingling in the whole body be the only ssymptom of brain tumor?

Basically no: Brain tumors can produce sensory stuff but it's always more or less localized. Do you think you might be hyperventilating? Have you had a chemical profile?

Have mild numbness and tingling randomly throughout my body. When I massage the base of my neck and my lower back, they feel sore. Spine issue?

Probably muscular: The neck and low back are covered with small muscles. These get stretched and bruised with regular movement. Small nerves travel through these muscles to the arms and legs. Spasms of these muscles can pinch the nerves and cause numbness and tingling. The muscles will feel sore when you massage. A good medical evaluation would be appropriate.
