What can cause dizziness, tingling in arms and legs? I notice it gets worse when I worry and am in public. Could this be anxiety or panic attacks?
Yes but more eval: Considering your history of symptoms in public and when feeling worried, it certainly could represent a panic attack.

What can cause tingling in both lower arms and legs? NOT hands and feet. Persistent for 3 weeks. Also when sitting or resting. No loss of sensation.
Ok, there's two main distributions of nerve problems: outward along an (injured) nerve or inward from the tips of (sick) nerves. Nerve problems in the middle of limbs. All four....would not be a regular nerve distribution. Muscle weakness from electrolytes (K, Ca, Mag), sick muscles. No, not fitting with standard patterns.
Neurologist would be a specialist in this sort of condition. ...Read more

Unlikely: More information is necessary like how long the tingling lasts, exact locations of the sensation, what provokes it, etc. This would be a good question to discuss with your doctor as several other things can cause bilateral upper and lower extremity symptoms - such as things related to nerves, medications, toxins, Raynaud's. ...Read more
Past 2 months pain in left side of head base neck. Now I have random pain and numbness/tingling in arms and legs. What's wrong? Symptoms mimic MS
Explanation: Although MS can be a tough diagnosis due to vague symptoms, I would doubt your problems are caused by MS. Suggest you have an MRI of your neck, as that is most likely the anatomic location for your issues. Your head/neck pain could be c/w Occipital Neuralgia, and could consider problems in arms/legs due to peripheral neuropathy if neck films are benign. ...Read more
Frequent headaches for 10 years. GP says tension in neck. Last 2 months tingling in arms and legs, comes and goes. GP says due to neck tension? True?
Not sure: If this is truly all from the neck, you have a spinal compression that needs to be addressed. I suspect that you suffer from generalized tension. This is a frustrating problem but is very manageable. I would suggest a sympathetic yoga or tai chi teacher, but there are many ways to skin this cat ...Read more

I'm experiencing numb chin and lower lip and painful tingling in arms and legs for the last 36 hours. Haven't been able to sleep.
Are persistent tingling in arms and legs for a few weeks an abnormal neurological finding? Does it warrant a MRI scan of the brain? Brain tumour?
Yes: Numbness and tingling of arms and feet requires medical evaluation. You need to see your primary care physician to some blood work first to rule out any metabolic reason for your symptoms. These will include test for thyroid disease, vitamin B12 deficiency, a metabolic panel and bold count. If all is negative, then a Neuro evaluation maybe needed. I doubt that you will need an MRI, ...Read more
Most likely spinal: Although peripheral neuropathy can cause the symptoms, arm symptoms are usually less than leg symptoms. If arm and leg symptoms are pretty equal, the problem could be either coming from brainstem or upper spinal cord problems. Nutritional deficiencies, like low blood calcium can do this too. ...Read more
I keep having numbness and tingling in my arms and legs. I've been tested for m.S. And it came back negative. Any other thoughts?
Numbness: Are you anxious are feeling a lot of stress. The most common cause of numbness of hands and feet is anxiety with or without hyperventilation. Hyperventilation, repeated deep breaths, can occur in some people who just sigh a lot. If the numbness or tingling is constant and progressive, you need to see a doctor to evaluate for spinal cord or peripheral nerve problems (rare). ...Read more

I got my 1st HPV in Dec of 2010 which I had no reaction to. I didn't get my second one until Oct of 2013. I had tingling in my arms and legs after that one for 2 weeks and my gyno said don't get the 3rd but im scared im at risk only getting two?
OK to re-vaccinate: It is unlikely the tingling was a vaccine side effect; I think your gynecologist was being unnecessarily cautious. You still need 2 more doses and maybe 3. Back in 2010, the vaccine covers only 4 HPV types; but in 2013, it could have been either Gardasil-4 or Gardasil-9. Nowadays, only G-9 is available; you need a total of 3 G-9 doses. ...Read more

Hi I am suffering from heavy arms and legs but feel weak if that makes sense, tingling at random points of my body and swallowing issues. What is it.?
Hyperventilation?: First, steroid shot should not be used for an URI since it does nothing good but possibly harm to the body. I suspect that you may already have an anxiety problem which exacerbated by the steroid injection leading to hyperventilation and the numbness. If the problem persists for more than 3-4 days or gets worse, contact your doctor. ...Read more
