This related to chronic anxiety and CO2 escapes and your blood becomes more alkaline and paresthesias occur. I advise getting professional evaluation & support for anxiety.

Would a pinched sciatic nerve cause pain in wrists and numbness/tingling in hands or feet?

Would a pinched sciatic nerve cause pain in wrists and numbness/tingling in hands or feet?

Feet maybe, hands no: The sciatic nerve runs from the gluteal region (your rear end) down the back of your leg, then branches to innervate the back of the thigh and leg as well as the outer part of the lower leg and then parts of the feet. An injury may cause those symptoms there, as well as problems with motion. The major nerves that serve the hands are the radial, ulnar and median. ...Read more

48 hrs post thyroidectomy, experiencing tingling in hands and feet intermittently, and some in face. Taking increased Ca. Will this go away?

Check calcium level: This could be a symptom of low calcium (hypocalcemia), which can occur after thyroidectomy. This can become serious, so would get back to your surgeon right away and get your calcium level checked. You may need more calcium and Vitamin D. The vitamin helps the body absorb calcium from the GI tract. ...Read more
