Post CS numbness : If the numbness in & around the site of your c-section is not worsening and has improved, you should live it alone. After a year has passed you will most likely have forgotten about it. If the numbness is bothering you or getting worse, this is something to discuss with your gynecologist. Damage to small nerves is not uncommon with any abdominal surgery & most do resolve; it may just takes a while.

My veins are popping out of my foot by my ankle, and my foot becomes numb occasionally. what is going on? my lower leg tingles too.

My veins are popping out of my foot by my ankle, and my foot becomes numb occasionally. what is going on? my lower leg tingles too.

Varicose Veins : You have back flow of the veins in your legs. This causes the bulging and swelling in the leg and foot due to excess fluid in the leg that normally would be moved out by the veins. This swelling compresses the nerves and causes the irritation. You can see a vein doctor to be evaluated for a corrective procedure.

Occasional leg/arm heaviness left face numb. Daily jaw pain nothing sets it off. It's been this way for months MRI blood test ECG was clear help!

See dentist first: Since you've had your heart tested, i would recommend seeing your dentist to evaluate your tm joint and muscles. After your dentist, i would recommend seeing an orthopedic surgeon- you might have a postural/muscle problem that's pinching a nerve or blood vessels to arms and legs.

Stop med : If you think that medication is causing those side effects then stop the medication. Birth control pills are out of your system in about seven days. If your symptoms continue then look for a another cause.
