? spondylosis: You experienced a spinal cord stimulation event of unclear cause at this time, and this initial sentinel event needs to be evaluated. Would suggest imaging studies, blood studies, and even visit to neurologist if necessary. Often these situations can be reversed readily.

Does MS commonly cause tingling, muscle spams, prickliness and pain down one side of the body (for example left side)?

Does MS commonly cause tingling, muscle spams, prickliness and pain down one side of the body (for example left side)?

YES: MS is the "great imitator" in that the symptoms are VERY DIVERSE and may mimic all sorts of neurologic symptoms! Ask your treating neurologist to check it out on your next visit. If you are not seeing a neurologist regularly START DOING SO! (My opinion only) Hope this is helpful! Dr Z

Nerve: This could be a pinched nerve that is aggravated in certain positions. If you are not extremely bothered by it, there is no need to seek urgent care. If you see rash in the area, then I would see an M.D. as it could be shingles. The tingling with shingles though, is not usually intermittent or position dependent.

I got shingles on both sides of my body from the waist down front and back. I am still dealing with numbness, tingling waist down a year later. Help?

I got shingles on both sides of my body from the waist down front and back. I am still dealing with numbness, tingling waist down a year later. Help?

Sorry some meds help: It sounds like you have a condition called post-herpetic neuralgia - the nerves where the shingles hid are still sensitive. It can continue to do so in some people up to 2 years from the incident. There are several meds in the market for it - check with your doc - they are designed to decrease firing of these nerves. They do eventually go back to normal.

Why do I get a tingling feeling down one side of my body starting from head and travelling down to toes before a large convulsion (conscious still)?

Why do I get a tingling feeling down one side of my body starting from head and travelling down to toes before a large convulsion (conscious still)?

Need more data: You are describing positive neurologic symptoms that sound episodic and not associated with a change in your level of awareness. Is that correct? If so- "is there any way you can tell a spell will occur? " or "do you get any warnings? " or "is there any way you can bring on a spell? " how long does the spell last? Have you experienced these spells in the past? Does hypo coincide with the spells...

Ultrasound scan: It is difficult to comment without a thorough examination. The symptoms may be caused by inflammation in the muscle and cartilage or it could be something more obscure such as a clot in your axillary or subclavian vein. Please see your doctor so you can get further investigations such as blood tests or Ultrasound scan done to determine the cause

Sciatic pain, top left buttock, hip & left side of body. Also tingling/numbness bottom of spine. Worst at night, hurts to move & just sitting down, help?

Ouch: sciatica (pain related to the course and distribution of the sciatic nerve), along with paresthesias (unusual sensations associated with sensory nerves) can be due to muscular inflammation, but might reflect ongoing damage to the nerve itself. Best to consult with your Primary Care practitioner for further evaluation and possibly imaging.

Nervous&lightheaded: Your symptoms can come from a variety of causes. They may be medical or psychological (anxiety) or a combo of both. Please see your doc. If he/she rules out medical, please see a mental health professional to learn strategies for stress management. Be sure to mention "impending doom" which MAY be related to OCD but not always. Peace and good health.
