You have been checke: Since you have been checked and found to be ok, I doubt that there is anything serious going on in your body. Symptoms like this can be of concern but mainly in older folks (>60 years) where concern about brain circulation can be a cause. You are too young to have such issues. You should stop worrying and assume you are healthy until proven otherwise. You should exercise daily...Take a w.

Ekg/Stressecho norm, bp130/80, agat score 0.5, EKG norm. Tingling in left side of face, arm and leg. Should I go to ER? Is it still cardio or anxiety?

Non cardiac pain: Not all tingling in the left arm is cardiac in origin. More than that, you have symptoms on the whole left side of the body, so it does not sound like cardiac. Also, you had a normal stress test. I am not sure about the AGAT score--is it the general ability test score? It may be anxiety related, but also would like to rule out neurological reasons. What is the reason for the Plavix (clopidogrel)?

ATEIN: A Thorough Evaluation Is Needed. .. You should get a complete in-person evaluation by a physician. The list of possibilities is too long to properly exclude online. An ER Evaluation is NOT that evaluation -- it is just a screen to rule out what needs to be dealt with immediately. A good neurologist is fine but I would start with a comprehensive evaluation by a good Primary Care Physician

Pinching nerve: Your symptoms sound like a pinching nerve causing parasthesias. I would see a dr. And get a clinical exam and the proper testing to diagnose your condition and then get the appropriate treatment. Good luck.

My dad is 53 over the last week he is has tingling in left arm. It went away when he hung his head. Now he has kink in neck and arm pain wontgo away?

See an MD: Most likely a nerve pinched in the neck which often resolves on its own with conservative management within about 6 weeks. Some 30% of pts need surgery for this if conservative is unsuccessful.

Can anxiety cause a tingling sensation left side of face left arm and left calf on and off today. No other symptoms. If I'm busy I feel it less.

Can anxiety cause a tingling sensation left side of face left arm and left calf on and off today. No other symptoms. If I'm busy I feel it less.

See that you have a: # of medical conditions. I would not assume that the tingling sensation you are experiencing is due to anxiety. The reason you may feel symptom less when you are busy is that it distracts you from focusing on the sensation. Take care.

Neurologist: If you can't obtain an appointment with a neurologist during these symptoms, you should go to the hospital emergency room where you will get prompt evaluation and testing including a brain ct scan or mri and a neurologist will be called in for consultation. I would be concerned about right sided cerebral cortical pathology such as a vascular blockage or a demyelinating process like multiple scler

Need more info: This sounds like you have a neurological problem. Somewhere nerves in your cervical spine are being impinged upon and you need to see your primary care physician and/or an osteopathic physician.

I've had numbness to my left side of the face/head and tingling in my left arm and hands. I had a sudden loss of hearing for about a min.?

Go to ER now: Any sudden onset of numbness in face, and/or one side of body, that lasts for more than a second or two needs to be evaluated right away. The sudden loss of hearing just confirms the need. Please go to an ER now. Hopefully it is nothing, but it is best to be sure that this is not something serious that could get even worse!

Neurologist: Sounds like a quick trip to your local neurologist. Pins and needles can be anything from a pinched nerve to a transient ischemic attack (mini pre stroke) don't mess around and have your symptoms evaluated.

Mononeuritis multipl: you have inflammation, of multiple nerves going to your face and arms. This can be due to something as simple as a virus, or some other inflammatory process. You need to be seen as soon as possible, so that this can be treated and result before it leads to more serious symptoms such as weakness.

You have: A lot of symptoms but very little in the way of objective information and with this combination of neurologic. Possibly vascular complaints a thorough and lengthy history and physical is necessary. I have a lot of questions which require more than the available space which still leaves a physical exam undone. I wouldn't even begin to venture a guess and recommend instead contacting your doctor.
