Waking up and feeling very numb on lower left side of abdomen. Lasts for a long time but not painful. What can this be?

Waking up and feeling very numb on lower left side of abdomen. Lasts for a long time but not painful. What can this be?

Asked MD?: This is an odd symptom. Does "numb" mean less feeling or too much feeling, i.e. Paresthesias (pins and needles)? Are there skin changes over the area (as in old shingles)? The nerves supplying the left lower quadrant come from the lower thoracic spinal roots, i.e. From the spinal roots at the lower end of the rib-cage. How long is "a long time"? Has your doctor examined you? What does (s)he say? ...Read more

Every period seems muscle along right side abdomen tightens up. Numb type pain. Sometimes swells in ovary on right when bloated. Any reason for this?

Ovarian ligament: The ovaries are supported by 3 ligaments, one on top and on inner aspect leading to uterus and on the bottom. These are affected during menstruations which can place pressure on the muscles they are underneath or attached to. Not necessarily unusual, but if keeps persisting I suggest seeing Gyn for pelvic exam and potential ultrasound ...Read more

Left side of body numb, doesn't function properly. Left side of face, upper abdominal muscle spasms, severe nerve pain. Can not think or converse, memory?

Left sided pain: The medications that you are taking can cause difficulty in thinking, speaking, and memory. It is important to review the proper dosages and timing of the medications with your prescribing physician to avoid an overdose. I am not sure what the cause of the left sided numbness, poor function, and spasms. This may be due to a previous stroke or a neck problem with spinal cord injury. ...Read more

Follow UP: Maybe a different doctor would be able to check you out. Sometimes reassurance or in the past 24 hours things may have changed. Follow up with your doctor by phone. If still not feeling better go to Urgent Care or ER. The numbness usually does not go with flu symptoms. Alot more information needed to advise. ...Read more

My lower abdomen feels funny after sex today, a strange numb, dull feeling on either side. What could this be? Am I pregnant? I'm on birth control

Pregnancy?: Assuming that you have not missed any birth control pills, or taken them more than seven days after finishing a package, you are probably not pregnant. To be certain, get a serum test (HCG) which is very accurate. Sometimes position changes with deeper penetration of the penis can cause the symptoms you describe, but these should subside in a couple days ...Read more

On the 22 I had a really sharp pain in my lower left abdomen that kept me in bed. Pain dulled but stayed then turned to numbness as of today. Cause?

How old are you?: Age is a major factor in determining what caused this pain. The problem could vary from constipation to diverticulosis, a condition that could lead to complications if you aren't on a proper diet. If the pain persist or become worse, I advise you to see your local doctor. Make sure you drink plenty of water and fluids. Add more fiber to your diet. Eat some fruits or vegetables and try excerising ...Read more

I have numbness on my lower back and abdomen and my skin is crawling. I'm on adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) could that be causing these sensations?

I have numbness on my lower back and abdomen and my skin is crawling. I'm on adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) could that be causing these sensations?

Not usually: Numbness and skin crawling sensations are not likely to be caused by Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and aren't listed as a side effect. But that doesn't mean this side effect is impossible. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) can increase anxiety in some patients which could result in abnormal skin sensations. More often than not, "skin crawling" sensation is anxiety/stress related. The same for the numbness in abdomen and back. Call your Dr. ...Read more
