I occasionally have numbness on parts of my head and limbs. Is this medication related (paxil (paroxetine) 10 mg, clonazepam 1 mg) or something serious?

I occasionally have numbness on parts of my head and limbs. Is this medication related (paxil (paroxetine) 10 mg, clonazepam 1 mg) or something serious?

Not likely the meds: It is not likely that the paxil (paroxetine) or the klonopin is causing a numb sensation in head or limbs. Sometimes an extended period of anxiety can cause a type of neuralgia that can feel like numbness. I'll presume you are not having panic attacks, which may cause neurologic symptoms. Suggest you report these symptoms to the physician prescribing the medications that you are taking. ...Read more

63 yr old male. Vertebrae hurts to the touch at back of neck.  Pain and occasional numbness in left arm and hand. Headache in the back of lower head.

Evaluation needed: But you already knew that. I would recommend seeing your regular doctor, getting an xray of your neck. You will likely also need a few more tests including an MRI and emg/ncs. This will help understand whether you have a herniated disc, and pinched nerve. Good luck! ...Read more

Pretty persistent tingling and slight numbness mainly on left side of lips for over 2 weeks now. What could this be?

Nothing else: At the least you're describing PARESTHESIAS of the lips but it certainly is a bit odd that it should be occurring just over the left 1/2 of your lips continuously. No facial droop on that side, drooling from the left corner of the mouth, difficulty closing the left eye? If yes, then, you may have a mild Bell's palsy. If not then, maybe getting some blood work would be indicated to check things. ...Read more
