For a few months, I've had some stiffness and weakness in my wrist and recently it has also made my ankle and leg occasionally weak and and tingling. In addition, I'm having some pressure on the right side of my face (behind my eye) - all of this on my right side. I work with a computer all day, so I thought initially it was just some carpal tunnel and possibly some nerve damage, but I was reading that a cause could be a spinal tumor and that concerns me.
I do have an occasional sharp pain my back when I turn sometimes, which usually goes away after a while, but it always seems to be in the same place. I also do have fairly bad allergies, but I am taking medication for them and they don't seem to reduce the facial pressure.
I went to a doctor who ran a few sensation tests and asked some general questions about it, but he wasn't sure what it could be. He had me do some blood work (still waiting on the results) and said to come back in a month if it was still bothering me.
Is it possible this is a tumor, or am i just overreacting? Thank you in advance...
My wife has been experiencing the same symptoms that started in May. She saw a doctor in June who told her the same thing, "come back if you still have problems in a month." Well, they continued and now after seeing the doctor again and some blood work they have scheduled an MRI. We want to know if you have heard anything else? Where are you now? What did they find? Please post back to let us know.
my MRI/bloodwork was negative. I still have some of the symptoms, but not as much after the relief of knowing it wasn't anything serious. i would say its stress and/or allergy related if anything - your doctor should clarify that.
rrscott, what did you find out with the MRI? I am very concerned I have a sct. It started with very painfeel sharp muscle spasam type pain in my rectum then it turned into a constant pressure on my tailbone in my rectum area and now lower back pain and tingling in hand pain in legs and feet. Doctors only want you to wait. Please let me know what you found out.
The MRI came back negative for anything irregular. The symptoms are still the same with the numbness and headaches. The symptoms do come and go and are sometimes stronger or weaker that other times. There haven't been any new symptoms, but our symptoms did start a couple months after yours so we'll keep you posted. I hope you find a solution soon, or at least some relief.
As I have heard spinal tumor is a cancerous or non cancerous growth that develops within or near your spinal cord or within the bones of your spine. Although back pain is the most common indication of a spinal tumor, most back pain is associated with stress, strain and aging â not with a tumor.
I think you should get a checkup on it.
Have you heard about puhuachina? They provide Stem cell hospitals, cancer stem cell treatment, brain tumor operation, spinal tumors operation, meningioma surgery operation. They maybe help you.
