Wasn't eating properly, had no sleep for 4 nights, argued with friends and family. Woke up at the end of a dream with tingling hands and feet and chest.

Wasn't eating properly, had no sleep for 4 nights, argued with friends and family. Woke up at the end of a dream with tingling hands and feet and chest.

Self Care Important!: You are stressing your body by not giving yourself good nutrition and not sleeping. This will make you feel irritable and cause you to argue. Or perhaps the arguments stressed you out? You need to eat and sleep in order to survive. The tingling may be from hyperventilation during the dream. Make sure you are not using any drugs (marijuana, alcohol, etc.) that could be altering your mood or sleep. ...Read more

Diagnosed with eosinophilic esophagitis and low iron. Is low iron due to EE? S/S burning feet, tingling hands/feet/headaches/chil Can this be from ee?

Unlikely: Eosinophililc esophagitis (EoE) symptoms include food impaction, with persistent trouble swallowing, abdominal pain, vomiting, or heartburn that fails to respond to medical therapy. Burning/tingling sensations not typical symptoms. Iron is not absorbed in the esophagus so unlikely culprit as well.

Tingling hands, tingling feet badly, sore lower back, dry eyes, seeing floaters. I have low thyroid on levo 100mcg but still in pain why?

Tingling hands, tingling feet badly, sore lower back, dry eyes, seeing floaters. I have low thyroid on levo 100mcg but still in pain why?

Totally unrelated: Hi. Those symptoms have nothing to do with your (treated and presumably normalized) hypothyroidism. The thyroid, more than any other endocrine system, gets blamed for everything. Even if your thyroid function is nowhere near normalized (which, on that dose, is unlikely), those symptoms having nothing to do with your thyroid. Mention them (symptoms) to your doc for other ideas. Good luck! ...Read more

Painful lower back (lumbar) constant pain. Have had tingling in my hands and feet since its started. Sometimes pain in my neck?

Possible nerve: You may have a nerve irritation or entrapment (called a radiculopathy) coming from your neck and/or lumbar spine. You would benefit from imaging studies such as an xray, initially, followed by an MRI if your xrays are normal and you are still having symptoms. In the meantime, using an over the counter anti-inflammatory may help and see an orthopedic spine specialist. ...Read more

Sob, dizzy, feet & hands tingling, bronchitis x 2 weeks ago. Urgent care last night said viral, pericarditis. Neck pain, feel faint. Albut barely helps?

Sob, dizzy, feet & hands tingling, bronchitis x 2 weeks ago. Urgent care last night said viral, pericarditis. Neck pain, feel faint. Albut barely helps?

You're ill: Viral illnesses must run their course. You're acutely ill right now. Go to bed. Drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated and raise your BP (low BP is contributing to your weak, dizzy, faint feeling). Eat salty foods. Rest. Be patient. If not improving in 5 days, be re-evaluated. You would do well to establish a relationship with a family doc and not use urgent care so you have continuity of care. ...Read more
