Why do I feel numbness in my hands and feet followed by crushing band sensation around my ribcage and weakness all when getting in sauna and or jacuzz?

DUE TO HEAT: You should see a neurologist soon. The heat is bringing out neurological symptoms, which point to a problem in your spinal cord. Mri films of neck and thoracic spine should help. You may or may not have multiple sclerosis or other problems within the spinal cord. Get checked out, and if needed, start treatment. ...Read more

I have worst headache ever stiff neck joint pain ribcage pain weakness feel like I have fever but I don't and sneezing?

Sounds worrisome: severe headache, neck stiffness, feverish feeling, pain in chest area could be something serious. I'm thinking possible meningitis. If you have a sore throat, or feel quite ill with this, go to SEE a physician. ...Read more

Have it checked: Splenomegaly as a finding isn't common unless you've been exposed to certain things that would cause it to be felt. Is this somethig your doctor has already discussed with you? If so, yonu need for him/ her to do an abdominal exam on you while lying down, and you'll have your answer. If it's continuous, and not related to your spleen, check your diet as bloating can be occur. ...Read more

Sounds like a: Viral infection. You can just treat the symptoms if you don't get much worse. Mucinexdm will loosen and help with the cough. Dayquil and nyquil help too . Ibuprofen or aleve (naproxen) for fever or aches. A cool mist humidifier in the room will help too. Did you get a flu shot? ...Read more

Having severe tightness on left side of heart near ribcage worsened by sitting, CT scan was normal, chest xray clear, what could these symptoms be?

Having severe tightness on left side of heart near ribcage worsened by sitting, CT scan was normal, chest xray clear, what could these symptoms be?

Worse sitting?: The only clue in your description is the observation that it's worse sitting. That suggests a muscular cause or possibly a compression neuropathy. A CT of the your cervical spine would rule the latter in or out. If negative, a trial of muscle relaxants and analgesics with physical therapy and heat would be worthwhile. ...Read more

Unusual: Their is something known as relapsing fever, but this is often due to a parasitic infection. Have you traveled outside of the United States within the last 12-24 months? You need to get this evaluated very quickly. My thought is simply one of what is very likely an extremely large medical differential for cause. No diagnosis can be given off the internet. An id specialist might help. ...Read more

Can a small nonenhancing right middle 3rd flax meningioma have symptoms: left side weakness numbness, cognitive issues, no headache. If so how likely?

Meningioma: If you have weakness and cognitive symptoms then you definitely need a neurosurgical consultation, regardless of the size of the meningioma. Even though it is benign, it is still potentially a problem if it's causing pressure on adjacent brain tissue. ...Read more

Can having slight weak tired feelin in left arm twice for 5 min or so, with full ability to squeeze, pull and hold straight in air, be TIA symptom?

Possibly: Your history of "blood clot in leg" is significant, and it is best to err on the side of safety. Suggest you see a doctor ASAP. This symptom could also represent angina ( pain originating from decreased blood flow to the heart muscle) ...Read more

After a neuro exam mr dr said the reflexes on my left arm is weak. Is this a symptom of ALS?

After a neuro exam mr dr said the reflexes on my left arm is weak. Is this a symptom of ALS?

Not by itself: If the only abnormality on your neurological exam is "weak" reflex in the left arm (which would technically be the triceps or the biceps reflex since the arm is that part of the upper extremity between shoulder and elbow) then, nobody could make a diagnosis of ALS based on this finding alone. Also, you are in the wrong age group for ALS and women are far less affected than men. All the best. ...Read more
