I get a tingling sensation from head to toe when my skin is stroked or massaged. Is it normal? Is there a hormone imbalance associated with it?

I get a tingling sensation from head to toe when my skin is stroked or massaged. Is it normal? Is there a hormone imbalance associated with it?

Is it normal, hmm...: "Normal" is a relative term. Apparently it's normal for YOU. I doubt a hormone imbalance, but there is only one way to know for sure, and that would be to get your hormone levels checked. That's not your decision; it's your doctor's based on your symptoms, your history, your physical examination, and possibly other tests. ...Read more

Get good tingling sensation from head to toe when skin rubbed/massaged. Is it true that stimulates excess growth hormone causing adults to grow taller

Get good tingling sensation from head to toe when skin rubbed/massaged. Is it true that stimulates excess growth hormone causing adults to grow taller

No.: No one with closed epiphyses of the long bones can grow taller with growth hormone--the bones just grow thicker. There exists no scientific evidence that massage helps children or adolescents with short stature to grow faster--they need injections of growth hormone by a pediatric endocrinologist. ...Read more

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... ...Read more

Well it started with the tingling and pain in the left scapula region and now numbness is radiated from left toe to left side of head! Help me out?

Beware numbness: Beware unexplained numbness. These symptoms may not make sense to most practitioners, but may be the earliest unexplained signs of worrisome conditions like transverse myelitis or multiple sclerosis. These are rare but serious diagnoses that often began with numbness if these persist or seem to worsen, see your neurologist. Many a person with these diagnoses have initially been labeled: "crazy". ...Read more

I am 27 yrs old I have extreme pain, tingling and numbness only in my left side from the top of my head to my toes. I have had an MRI and nothing. Ty?

I hate to say it: I hate to say it, but this suggests a psychological issue. The way the nerves run, one sided pain... Is highly unlikely from a physical origin. As you have had a MRI that suggests that you have had the non-psychological origins evaluated. Might be time to see a psychiatrist/psychologist with experience in somatization disorders. ...Read more

Needs brain imaging: Your presentation of symptoms really requires a neurological workup with imaging studies (preferably MRI with gadolinium contrast), blood chemistries, and just a real tight history of when all this started, how it evolved, and if anything sort of funky, odd, or interesting has ever happened before "when you weren't watching."
