Lately, my arms and legs have been feeling tight and tingly.

Resolved Question:

Lately, my arms and legs have been feeling tight and tingly. Even heavy. My left arm sometimes hurts. When i wake up sometimes, my body feels numb... or when i touch my fingers together it feels surreal, and they almost feel longer than they are, or like they arent touching. Also, my legs and arsm have had a Rushing feeling.. like i can feel the blood flowing through my veins. (weird, i know) I have over active adrenal grands, and a relatively high blood pressure. I also sit in front of the computer 6 hours a day. I know i should get excercie, and i will. But i would like to know if anyone can single out the root of my problem, thanks much!

Hello
Not singling out the cause would require testing
This is called parasthesia and there are multiple possible causes


Liver or kidney problems
Diabetes or thyroid problems
Iron deficiency
Polycythemia Vera [too many red cells]
Certain autoimmune diseases [sarcoidosis]
Hidden infections
Parasites
Hidden malignancies
Gallbladder problems
Allergy
Heavy metal toxicity

Alcohol, drug, poisons
Heavy metals
Spinal disease [discs]

So I suggest you seen an internal medicine doctor who can test and rule out these in a visit or two

Let me know if you have further questions, details or need clarification, just use reply.......

Thanks you. I'll see a specialist, but in the meantime can you provide and exersizes, or eating habits etc that may help with it? It's kinda scary.

Use a nutrient dense diet
This reduces inflammation
I would not exercise other than walking
The diet, in order of preference in quantity, should look like this
leafy greens
green veggies
other veggies
whole fruit, beans and peas
Whole grains no yeasted breads, dry cereals or anything refined
Seeds and nuts, but cut out seeds if you have any diverticulosis.
A little tofu or tempeh daily
A little high quality soy or coconut milk yogurt

The soluble fiber in this strategy will stabilized colon function in about 6 to 8 weeks, then about 2 or three helpings of animal foods a week, preferably fish, can be added back.
See the book Eat to Live by Dr. Joel Fuhrman, for instructions on this type of die t

good luck
