Left sided numbness: These are symptoms of great concern. There are several possibilites one of which could be a warning of an impending stroke. You should call your doctor asap to report this and get seen for an examination to determine the cause. Do not delay this. If you suddenly worsen call 911. Alert your family that you are having trouble and do not be alone until you get medical help.

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?

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.

Get checked Out: Although it is unlikely for a 35yo woman to have significant cardiac disease it is not impossible. In addition your symptoms could represent a blood clot in your leg or lungs. You should establish with a health care professional as soon as possible and get checked out.

Get a diagnosis: Left sided numbness could be as simple as referred numbness from myofascial pain (which is cause by muscle imbalances), or even carpal tunnel in the left wrist, but could also be as serious as nerve damage from your fracture, or even a stroke. I'd recommend seeing a physiatrist or neurologist to get a clear diagnosis. Then you can target an appropriate treatment.

Evaluate Neck: If you are not improving have your doctor order a cervical spine mri. Many times a herniated disc in the neck can cause arm pain especially if you have not improved with the medications and physical therapy. If it is a herniated disc you may need evaluation from a spine specialist to determine what other options might be needed (injections, surgery, etc) to help reduce pain.

Neuropathy: Numbness can be the result of a mechanical assault on nerves (ie pinched nerves in the neck or spine), or from systemic abnormalities such as B12 deficiency or thyroid dysfunction. Medications can contribute to the problem as well. It can even result from abnormalities of the brain itself. A number of tests exist to establish a cause and can be ordered by your primary care physician.

Is it possible to have left leg swelling and numbness along with left arm swelling and numbness. Vascular?

Leg and arm numbness: Yes. Numbness typically implies nerve irritation. Leg and arm numbness both could be vascular issue from bleeding in the brain. Would recommend to see a neurologist or local PCP in your area.

Need to address ASAP: Need to address what might harm you the most quickly. Your chest pain radiating down your left arm describes a heart attack. Take aspirin if not allergic and seek help NOW. Your back and leg symptoms sound more like a herniated disc /sciatic nerve injury. Only after you are evaluated for your heart, a workup for back problems as mentioned should be initiated. Answer is not on internet, call 911.

Radiculopathy and HA: Neck pain and/or pain around the shoulder blades with associated weakness and/or numbness into the shoulder, arm or hand implies a pinched nerve from either arthritis or a ruptured (herniated) disc. May cause muscle tension in neck and "tension" headache. Nonsurgical treatment includes pt (i prefer mckenzie exercises), arthritis meds, and nerve blocks. Surgery if symptoms no better or worsen.
