You should see a neurologist. There are a lot of possible causes for this that need to be tested for. They can do a nerve function test to see how well they are conducting and sometimes they can narrow down the cause with that. Make sure that the neurologist has all of your medical records before you go.

Write down all of your symptoms, when they started, anything that you did differently at that time or anything that's changed. Include the severity of your symptoms, how it's progressed, if anything at all makes it better or worse, and what activities are harder because of it (standing, sleeping, walking, lifting, etc). Take this list to the doctor along with a list of questions that you have.

I know that so much of this is very expensive, but if it can be fixed, it will be worth it. If you let it go, you may not be able to work or function normally. Do you have any family that can help you with bills?

Let us know how things turn out. Good luck with everything.

I kind of have the same thing and my doctor says everything is fine. I am 27 and am scared to death as it seems you were/are. I had a baby 5mos ago and mine started when I took much needed time off from work (retail) and was breast feeding. The feeling in my stomache area makes me feel like I its heavy and like I am going to just stop breathing.
Are you under a lot of stress??
That is one of the many things the doc said it could be for me but for some reason he is reluctant to send me to have more tests. They did check me for vitamin deficiency too (haven't gotten those back yet).

Did you find out what was wrong?? I have had exactly the same thing for past 3 weeks. Is now reaching my neck and already taken over my left hand and half my right. I am scared it is going to go to my face next. I have been to 2x GPs and the ER and have been referred to a specialist and for further MRI imaging- head drs at ER referred me. My appt isn't for days and this numbness/ tingling is moving fast!! Thanks in advance xx

Numbness is a mineral deficiency the iodine in your common
table salt is not the natural kind, go to the health food store and be healthy. God Bless all who read this! our bodies are wonderfully and fearfully made by God. He put all the right plants on the earth for our healing.

I found out what was wrong with me... I was diagnosed with MS in jan 2012. I am on IV treatment once a month now, the medication is called TYSABRI... I left it too long before getting diagnosed now my left leg is numb inside and hands still pins and needles feeling. My toes in my left foot do not work properly also. The Neuro thinks this may now be permanent damage. If u have any of the symptoms mentioned in the above thread I urge you
To be persistent with ur drs and get to the bottom of is ASAP! It may not be MS but
If it is it could be serious! much love from Princess Leeya xx

Progressive Tingling, numbness, weakness, loss of appetite
Progressive Tingling, numbness, weakness, loss of appetite

I am a 52 yr old peri menopausal woman with hashimoto's thyroid disease and thyroid eye disease. 3 weeks ago a tingling started in my left foot. Each day since, the symptoms have progressed to the entire left side, right lower leg, both sides of the face and right arm too. I have no appetite and experience burning sensations throughout the body. Each day the symptoms get worse. I'm very frightened.
I have had a CT Scan, MRI for both brain & cervical spine, EMG & muscle testing, blood and urine analysis, EKG and thyroid panels. All tests appear normal!
I see a rheumatologist next week for possible immune disorders. As my symptoms don't seem to connect with any common diseases I was looking for anyone who might be able to connect any of these dots to a suggested diagnoses? My MRI shows no signs of MS.
