Back of Head, upper neck stiffness, headache, heaviness in right ear, weakness in legs, numbness & radiating pain in left arm&leg. ECG normal. Worry?
Neurologist. These symptoms appear more neurological rather than cardiac. Numbness of left arm and leg can be caused by pathology in the right cerebral cortex which occurs from blockage in the right carotid artery or an intracerebral artery in the right side of the brain circulation. I recommend a prompt evaluation in the hospital emergency room where a brain cat scan and carotid artery ultrasounds can be done.
Bad head ache, left arm and leg gets numb, heart beating twice as fast, feeling light headed when standing, lower right side of back hurts (cant lay on)?
Head ache. I suspect a good part of the history is missing. We have no other information about you such as your medical or mental health history, any trauma. Do you have any other symptoms such as light sensitivity, fever, nausea, shortness or breath, etc? We also dont know how long the symptoms have been going on. I suggest you consult your doctor for a physical exam and possible X-rays and labs. Read more...
