What Can Cause Numbness In Fingertips And Lips
My lips and left fingertips are numb....What are possible causes? They stay numb but have no other noticable changes.
Numbness: The possibilities are too numerous. An adequate history and physical examination performed by your physician would help him to narrow down the possibilities. I always look for vitamin B12 and blood sugar disorders. Carpal tunnel syndrome, neck conditions, brainstem demyelinating or structural disorders, and less likely stroke or tumors. Check with your physician for actuate diagnosis. Be well. ...Read more

Causes of numbness and prickling feeling in hands feet lips infact in the whole body for more than one week?

What would cause sudden numbness in my face, lips and right arm? And still am having it and it's been more than a week
Not so sudden: If it is one event, then it's not so sudden but now subacute.

If those symptoms are constant, even if intensity is variable, then a small stroke is likely. This needs neurologic attention soon--like today! ...Read more

Nerve issue: If the tingling is within the distribution of a cutaneous nerve then it's possible that that nerve is being pinched somewhere. The tingling of hyperventilation is due to changes in calcium in your blood so if the symptom is similar to hyperventilation then calcium levels should be checked. I don't know why the sensation of air hunger is associated with these symptoms in your case. ...Read more
