Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
By any chance have you had a fall recently, or had an accident possibly involving your neck?
Thanks in advance...
The additional symptoms you have listed leads me to think that you might be having low blood sugar episodes. Has anyone ever tested you for Diabetes? Being a fellow sufferer of the disease, I had symptoms very much like yours before the diagnosis.
The circulatory system is definitly comprimised with Diabetes, and the body responds in many strange ways, no one in particular.
This is just a suggestion that you might want to consider having ruled out.
Also..another possibility could be a Thyroid disorder. You may want to have this looked at as well. It plays a major role in your bodies metabolism and circulatory system as well.
I hope you can find the answers you need and I wish you the best in a speedy cure/recovery. If you need anything additional, feel free to write again, and please keep us posted on your status.
Take care & God bless..
Cheryl might have something with the diabetes, it is definitely worth being checked out, but usually the tingling in the arms or legs might be related to something going on within your nerves in the neck/back region. Sometimes when we get a pinched nerve, you don't realize it for a while after it is done. In my opinion a thorough assessment with your doc, telling him everything you have told me would be in order. If you are showing symptoms of being diabetic, that is not something you would want to put off, and that can be evaluated fairly quickly with a simple test. Your doctor can also order tests to test your nerves to see if there is an interruption in the pathways somewhere, along with an MRI that can show if there are any other acquired problems that have slipped by you. I would also suggest before you go, to sit down and write out a list of the symptoms you are experiencing, what time of the day, what if anything you do to bring them on, and what if anything you can do to relieve the symptoms. This can be very helpful when diagnosing your problems, also add any questions you might have that would be easy to forget when being nervous or feeling rushed, and if you mention your list right off when you walk through the door - you will be less likely to forget it...or think that it is not so important while sitting on the table. That way all of your concerns are addressed, and nothing is left out. Doctors appreciate this, and it keeps you from "getting off on another subject"...and forgetting what you were going to say.
Good luck to you.
