I've been getting tingles swelling and aching in my hands…

Customer Question
I've been getting tingles...

I've been getting tingles swelling and aching in my hands finger arms neck shoulders and elbows for months. I've had tests with no solutions. The past week and half I've been getting light headed and blurred vision. I've been very tired but unable to sleep. Today I've had numbing tingles in my cheeks and in the back of my head. And I've been nauseous

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the neck pain? Are you experiencing any numbness or tingling?

In my arms and hands for about 10mths. In my neck for about 6 mths. But in my cheeks only today

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I've had migraines since I was was about 18. I'm 42 now. Have just been put on a preventative for them.

Hello... I understand your concern.

I need some more information please.

1. Are you having any rash or redness while you have this sensations?

2. Is this associated with any fever or painful bubbly rash?

3. Is it more of electric shock like sensations or just tingling and numbness?

4. While it improves does it leave any residual weakness?

5. Do you have severe headache associated with these sensations and does it get better with sleep?

6. Do you feel any anger or irritation during the episodes?

7. Did you see an ophthalmologist for the blurred vision?

8. May I request you to upload all the tests which you have undergone till now?

Please get back to me with the above information so that I can guide you better.

Hi. There is no rash. I feel a little warm on and off. Sometimes it's like cold tingles and sometimes it's like mild electric tingles. Only a mild headache with it. I do have mild weakness in my fingers and wrists eg. Lifting coffee mug and tying shoe laces. When I wake, I still feel very tired and have a lot of trouble getting to sleep. But does subside a little when I've first woken but start again about an hour after. Not anger or irritation. I have not been given any of my test results. The doctor has kept them but she said they are clear. No rheumatoid arthritis or other similar. Bloods all clear. Xrays on hands showed nothing. Ct on neck was clear except mild degeneration of the c5 stuff. I was given some tablets for the dizziness and blurred vision but they don't work
Doctor: Sumanth Amperayani, Board Certified MD replied 23 days ago

Hi...thank you for getting back with the necessary information.

From the symptom analysis and the history I have gathered from you - I put forth these possibilities -

1. Peripheral neuropathy - this may be amenable to B1, B6, B12 vitamin supplements daily. It is available as Tablet Neurobion Forte, 1 twice a day for 30 days.

2. Multiple Sclerosis - This requires further neuroimaging and nerve conduction studies and further evaluation of CSF analysis.

3. Sensory Migraine - least of the possibility.

Please get back if you have further queries and I will be waiting.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
