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

Yes: Levaquin (levofloxacin) can cause a condition called peripheral neuropathy. We don't actually know how often this happens, but probably pretty infrequently.

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

I feel tingling in hands and feet when stressed or anxious. Is this something I should be concerned about?

Can be helped: You could be experiencing some degree of hyperventilation which causes changes in your carbon dioxide level in the blood stream, and creates the tingling. First get a handle on the stress/anxiety cascade, and then develop approaches to control you limbs. Cognitive-behavioural approaches may help, and even could try acupuncture. Some anti-anxiety meds could benefit. Read more

Upper back pain with tingling in hands and feet.

Upper back pain with tingling in hands and feet.

Stressed out: Does it feel like your shoulders are pulled up almost to your ears? I have found that some people get stress build up in their shoulders, neck and upper back. This also goes hand in hand with clenching your teeth. A stress reduction protocol and massage may help the initial pain. The tight muscles may be squeezing the nerve to cause tingling. Use moist heat to relax the soft tissue then stretch. Read more

I had a DVT/PE now on xarelto. What does tingling in hands and feet indicate and how serious is it? What can I do (hopefully besides another ER visit?)

Go see your doctor: You may be describing a side effect of Xarelto (http://www. Drugs. Com/xarelto. Html) but I can't be sure w/o exam which is why you need to go see your prescribing doctor. Or maybe it's a side effect of your Topamax (topiramate) (http://www. Drugs. Com/topamax. Html). I didn't find any interactions btwn these two drugs (http://www. Drugs. Com/drug_interactions. Php).

NumbNess and tingling in hands and feet. Sedrate of 23. Ana 1.4Fatigue. Sore. Depression. Blah feeling allthe time. What's going on?

Hyperventillation: No point in ANA since ESR is normal. Need an experienced DR. Anxiety may result in overbreathing with respiratory alkalosis. You may also have spells of rapid heart, light-headed sensations, feeling that you cannot get a deep enough breath, difficulty sleeping. Meds and behavior therapy will help you. Beta blocker meds can be very effective. Antidepressants can help. The sooner you go, the better. Read more

Tingling in hands and feet for over a week. Mild pain. Low platelet count but other than that doctor couldn't find anything wrong. Any ideas?

Tingling in hands and feet for over a week. Mild pain. Low platelet count but other than that doctor couldn't find anything wrong. Any ideas?

Follow up: Mild tingling can be caused by many things....yet it may be transient. If it gets worse and does not resolve in 4-6 weeks then you need follow up evaluation from your doctor. A neurologist may be mor ehelpful if it became a real problem which you will know in next few months. I would not rush into tests which may not show anything yet are expensive and not always helpful.
Recheck your platelets. Read more
