My left arm and leg feel numb and tingling.
It is on and off, more in the arm than in the leg. My left hand was a bit painful, but the pain was gone after a few minutes.
Should I see a doctor right away?
These symptoms indicate a possibility of a TIA (Transient Ischemic Attack) or mini-stroke. I would recommend seeing a doctor asap to get checked, preferably in the ER.
I had the tingling symptoms last evening for 1-2 hrs, I slept well during the night.
After approximately 2 hrs since I woke up, I felt the numbness again, but symptoms disappeared during the day. They came on again 2 hrs ago.
Now I have some point pain in my left shoulder and my left hand is colder. I am also i person that worries about everything. Been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis +20 years ago, but today the doctor said they don't have all the pieces for this diagnostic.
X ray to the left hip says femoral acetabular impingement of picer -type
some blood results: anti-nuclear antibody is positive, moderate to mild vit D deficiency, RBC are low
Considering this additional information, this may not be TIA, but it's still a possibility.
Other possible causes are pinched nerves, medication side effects, anxiety disorder etc. You should benefit from anxiety treatment.
But you do need to see your doctor soon to get some tests done to rule out TIA. If your symptoms worsen, going to the ER will be recommended.
Does the x-ray finding have anything to do with my left arm and hand? Does the numbness and tingling come and goes in a TIA case?
