Cervical radiculopathy: You could have a pinched nerve in the neck which is affecting nerve impulses to the muscle, and subsequent weakness in the affected arm. There are also other reasons that could cause weakness in the arm. Either way you need to be seen by an orthopedic spinal specialist and get a formal work up. ...Read more

Chiari malformation can produce tingling in neck and shoulders with headaches. You might have a couple of unrelated problems producing a confusing clinical picture. (separate neck and ear problem).

For 2 days I've had loose stools a temp of 99.7 soar muscles weakness nausea hot flashes I do have anxirty BP is a little elevated 137/87 do I have flu?

The stomach bug..: It is possible that you have the flu, but flu infection often causes pulmonary symptoms in adults, such coughing/wheezes etc. And more with gastrointestinal symptoms in younger children. Viral gastroenteritis (stomach bug) is more likely the cause of your trouble. Tums/peptobismol and some Motrin may help, along with increase of fluid for couple of days. If worsens, call doc. Good luck. ...Read more

I have excessive sweeting (hot flashes) which causes really strong under arm smell what can cause this?

Hyperhidrosis: You might have a disorder of the innervation of the sweat glands that causes the excessive sweating. It could also be a hormonal issue if you have recently started or changed birth control methods. Did this just start suddenly or has it been slowly worsening? I would talk with your Family Doctor about it. ...Read more

Is bioidentical progesterone topical cream for arms just as good as taking a 50 mg bioidentical capsule at night before bed for menopause hot flashes?

Is bioidentical progesterone topical cream for arms just as good as taking a 50 mg bioidentical capsule at night before bed for menopause hot flashes?

Neither: The term "bioidentical" is a marketing tool, used to make people believe that these products are somehow better or safer than other forms of hormones. There is no good evidence that this is true. Most topical creams are not regulated by the fda, and so their effectiveness is mostly unknown. Estrogen is the much more effective hormone for treating menopausal symptoms than progesterone. ...Read more

22 5'8 148 lbs 3 1/2 months postpartum I keep having numbing tingling sensation in left arm radiating to neck chest pain and hot flashes I breastfeed?

No worries: Congratulations on the baby Allison. Unfortunately they can reek havoc on your body. I would recommend you start with the basic moist heat, massage & lymphatic drainage of that left arm. Carpal Tunnel syndrome is a distinct possibility. Try a cock up splint. You may need an MRI of your C-Spine if not improving. I wouldn't worry about the vasomotor symptoms. They will resolve with time. Common! ...Read more

Left arm, neck, shoulderblade pain 8 mos. Today hot flash with the pain. Ekg, holter, cholesterol 6 mos. Ago- ok! Dr. Says muscular not cardiac. Thoughts?

Need more info...: If the pain increases when you move your arm, neck or shoulder, then it is more likely musculoskeletal. If the discomfort only occurs when you are moving these body parts then it is more likely musculoskeletal. If the ekg was done while you were having the pain and it was normal, then it goes against a cardiac origin. See a cardiologist if you are still concerned to pursue further testing. ...Read more

Left arm numb, feel like passing out, hot flashes. EVERY thing with cardiologist is good. Do have anxiety. Gi doc said I have gerd inflam chest wall.

See a good Internist: Paxil (paroxetine) has many side effects. An ECG will not determine what is causing left arm numbness or your other complaints. You need a full Physical exam and may require an xray or CT of your chest as well as blood work. Perhaps another choice for Paxil (paroxetine), Internist is the best choice. ...Read more

I have had nexplanon in my arm for two years now and have had a sudden onset of the following symptoms: dark brown spotting with no bright red blood 3-4 weeks ago and no appetite, tender breasts, fatigue, and hot flashes for the past 1-2 weeks should I w

No worries: It is not unusual to have these irregular hormonal fluctuations with progesterone only devices. It is always good advice to check a urine pregnancy test since that is the reason you are using the Nexplanon in the first place. Once you verify its negative, you know the device is doing its job and so you worry less. ...Read more

Swollen breasts, severe night sweats (not hot flashes), fatigue, patchy hair loss under arm and pubic hair, strawberry tongue, swollen hands and fingers. Partial hysterectomy in 2012. I'm 39. Is this menopause?

Could be, but if-: -you still have your ovaries, it's a hard call. Also many of those symptoms are not menopausal. Best to see your GYN first & get referrals as needed. If you have an internist, that's also a good place to start. ...Read more
