Paresthesia In Face
Cold shoulder pain, sleep paralysis, myoclonus, tmjd, hypoglycemia, voice hoarseness, numbness in neck, paresthesia in face (electrical) and body?
Long menu: You have a long menu of symptoms. I would recommend you see a neurologist who specializes in sleep disorders as well and that you also see an endocrinologist. Together they be able to piece together what's going on. The help of an ear nose and throat specialist may also be required. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What would cause paresthesia in right face/arm when massaging ache in top neck/skull base? No news back from spine X-ray last week. Should i worry about aneurysm/tumors? Always achy. Dr says anxiety.
Likely but maybe not: Neurologically, it wouldn't happen. A rare form of thoracic outlet syndrome could cause the hand symptoms. This can be tested for in the office by your doctor. Nerves to the right face do not run through the neck. Spine xrays will not be helpful. A careful neurologic exam of the affected hand and face during the symptoms will tell the tale clear enough. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 12y old son had ischemic strk(left) 10 mths ago with minor symptoms.Today he had Paresthesia in right side head for few secs.Should we consult Doc?
Yes: Those symptoms could be from the stroke or a new or worsening stroke problem. You should check with a doctor who saw him with the prior stroke. A stroke at his age usually has a specific cause . This could include an injury, an unusual shaped blood vessel on the brain or a disease. Ischemic stroke should not be the only diagnosis. ...Read more
Can perimenopause cause paresthesias which are felt on the face (tingling) & top of head (dripping)? If so, are there any treatments e.g. hormones?
Gastroenteritis: It is tough to say but vomiting or diarrhea can lead to electrolyte imbalances such as hypokalemia which can in turn lead to muscle cramping. Oral parasthesias classically are associated with low calcium levels. Regardless, be sure to adequately hydrate yourself if unable to eat. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm having paresthesia in some parts of my head (it feels only at the skin of my head) . Mostly it feels above the left ear,should I consult a doctor?
Yes,it could be neck: Sometimes a pain in the neck, better referred to as a pinched nerve, degenerative disc disease or cervical radiculopathy can cause paresthesias in the head. However, there could be a neurological basis as well and thus you should check with a Neurologist to make sure. ...Read more
What could be causing allover paresthesia head to toe? Any other autoimmune or other disorders other than MS? All blood work OK except iron anemia.
Not sure: Sometimes we do not find a case of paresthesia throughout the body. It is not normally anemia, unless B12 deficiency is present. To be absolutely thorough, you may have had these tests to find a cause: 1. blood & urine tests 2. nerve conduction studies 3. MRI studies 4. skin biopsy for small fiber neuropathy If you haven't had these, that may be ok. Don't forget to discuss with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Are paresthesias along with loss of sensation in legs, burning in head a sign of a stroke? Can an MRI of brain detect previous strokes?
Paresthesia from head to toes started suddenly & muscle pain Had MRI for something else 2013 w/non-specific white matter Neuro said migraines not ms?
Complex: Cannot definitively say what is occurring but would certainly wonder whether you are experiencing a medication reaction, or a problem within your neck. The neurologist probably was correct about the original MRI, but now you might be helped by a cervical MRI study. Perhaps a followup with your prior doctor?? ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
35 yr-old started with paresthesias 4 yrs ago, that generalized to include autonomic symptoms and gastroparesis, looking for effective treatment.....?
Neuro exam?: Interesting case, but I'd like to know about her neuro exam. By the history, her symptoms haven't progressed in a length-dependent manner (especially given the facial sensory involvement) and this points me toward a sensory neuronopathy aka sensory ganglionopathy. These patients would be expected to have proprioceptive impairment-- if she is still a dance instructor, I doubt her proprioception is impaired. If her neuro exam and nerve conduction study are truly normal, I suspect any additional testing will be normal as well. ...Read moreSee 10 more doctor answers

Occipital Neuralgia: Sounds like you might have this. I would consider icing the area and using anti-inflammatories to help. If it does not resolve you might see your doctor for a occipital nerve block with steroid. ...Read more
