I just want to know possible causes of my right arm and hand tingling every time I urinate.

Wow. .. that's an: Unusual association! One might speculate that a change in position in your low back/lumbar spine when you sit on the toilet might cause some nerve compression but it's hard to imagine this effect in the upper spine where nerves to arms/hands exit. Perhaps this is a valsalva (push to urinate) effect, though hard to imagine, too. I can only suggest discussion with your doctor/probably a Neurologist ...Read more

Severe arm and hand tingling like electric shock when I tilt my head back Also neck pain arm numbness?

Radiculopathy: It sounds like a disc has herniated in your neck or some other issues closing off the opening your nerve roots run through to exit the cervical spine. These are classic symptoms and I recommend seeing a physician sooner than later to identify if there is anything emergent or surgical necessity to avoid arm paralysis. You may not need anything but a Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pack, but get checked to be sure. ...Read more

Tingling in hands, arms, legs, and feet. Get nauseous, sick, light headed and dizzy feelings in mornings and in stomache mostly in the mornings.?

Concerning symptoms: The symptoms you describe are very concerning and can be many things. With the nausea and stomachache in the morning, I'm wondering if you're having gastritis or peptic ulcer disease. That doesn't often cause tingling hands, arms and legs, so more investigation is needed. If you haven't had a checkup with a doctor in a while, now's the time! Best of luck! ...Read more

Numb/tingling in hands, legs, and feet on both sides. Muscle spasms in legs, back and arms. Loss of balance, dizzy, stiff. Is it Neuropathy or ms?

Bad choices: You probably don't need or want to pick A or B. Both require a doctor's DX and TX and it might be another thing altogether. A common cause of neuropathy is a diabetic condition w/ other signs too - are you a diabetic? Get into care if 'yes'! MS usually starts a bit later in age. Have an exam to find an answer. Best! ...Read more

I experience painful blood vessels in hands feet, legs and arms, burst veins, cramp, painful spasms in neck, tinitus and tingling in hands and mouth?

Sounds like: Some of your symptoms may be related to your fibromyalgia. It does not look like you are taking any medication for this. If you are having swelling/edema in your extremities that can also be a cause for the "burst veins". Varicose veins can also become inflamed, causing your symptoms. I would recommend you see your doctor to have these addressed. There ARE treatments for fibromyalgia! ...Read more

Normal stressecho, agatston score of 0.5, good chol/hdl/ldl, bp120/80-130/80. Overweight. Left elbow to hand tingling. What could this be? TIA?

No: It's a neuritis symptom, not cardiac, not TIA. Nerve compression or impingement are common issues. Ulnar neuritis would be my first thought but it could be higher up (in the neck). If it persists, a nerve conduction study would be of value. ...Read more
