Otherwise, I feel fine. I did some yard work yesterday (minor garden weeding). Do you thing that it is realted.
Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!
Tingling in one half of the body can be due to fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, severe anemia, spinal nerve compression high up in the cervical spine, ankylosing spondylitis, osteoarthritic changes of the vertebrae, calcium deficiency, low Vit D, electrolyte disturbance, peripheral neuropathy due to diabetes or hypothyroidism or due to bad posture. Lyme and lupus are the other possibilities.
Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please discuss these possibilities with your PCP once. In fact, it would be best to go to an ER or to a neurologist immediately. Please do not ignore. Hope this helps. Take care!
