Can ct head/orbit cause : lightheaded dizzy  w/ brief low rumble noise , headache w/ tingling forehead? Dr said maybe anxiety, but no hx panic.attacks

No, a CT cannot: CAUSE these symptoms. In fact, a CT may HELP DIAGNOSE reasons for dizziness and headache, such as sinusitis. Your doctor is correct that anxiety can cause dizziness and tingling, even without "panic attacks". If you have your CT on a disc, I can explain it to you on HealthTap Concierge healthtap.com/saurbornmd. ...Read more

Panic attack?: you note u have fibro & that you're taking paxil, Xanax, Lyrica (pregabalin) and attending therapy. Paxil and Xanax are often used to treat anxiety. You mentioned you felt burning and tingling & thought you might have a panic attack. Lyrica (pregabalin) is approved to treat fibro & may reduce anxiety. If you feel you're having a side effect of a med, or that ur not fully treated, ring ur doc to discuss next steps :) ...Read more

What causes tingling in hands during a panic attack? Sorry to ask again just didn't get answer. Thank you in advance

What causes tingling in hands during a panic attack? Sorry to ask again just didn't get answer. Thank you in advance

Fight/flight: Our bodies react to threat w/ a wide range of chemical/hormonal responses. They helped our ancestors survive by preparing the body to run or fight. Blood flow is raised and re-directed to muscles from whatever else it was doing. Breathing changes, it's complicated - but dry mouth, sweating, etc., etc. all can happen. The nerve endings in your hands are stimulated. Seek good CBT Tx for the attacks! ...Read more

Hurt my neck 2 days ago. I have numbness and tingling but its also a symptom of my panic attacks. I bumped head into wall. It wasnt hard at all. ?

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. If symptoms mild, you can wait and see if they get better on their own. ...Read more

I have a thymoma and I've been havin chest pain with numbness and tingling in my arms I know its not a panic attack like everyone says so what could be?

Check it out: Any chest pain should be considered a possibility of heart origin -- so make sure that it is not a coronary heart disease -- then perhaps you need another imaging study to see the size of your thymoma -- it too can cause chest discomfort and numbness to the extremities and may need to be removed -. ...Read more

I have mild tingling on my right cheek the day after drinking alcohol. Worried it's peripheral neuropathy or TIA. Or it could be panic attack.

I have mild tingling on my right cheek the day after drinking alcohol. Worried it's peripheral neuropathy or TIA. Or it could be panic attack.

Doubtful: although alcohol can cause a peripheral neuropathy usually one does not drink it and have the symptoms the next day. It is usually a long term effect of many drinks - not just one. And you should see a neurologist if you are concerned about this. It could be a TIA. It could be RIND. It could even be a small stroke. Do you have any weakness or vision problems? see a doctor if you are. ...Read more
