UPDATE Tingling Left arm and THumb
« on: July 08, 2014, 10:11:48 PM »
I also started getting these weird tingly vibrations down my left leg. I have a MRI for my Cervical Spine set up for next Tuesday. Im starting to get worried that its more than just a pinched nerve. Its sounding more and more like MS. Guess I will find out my fate next week. :dazed:

MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state

Left sided problems I see, we should start a group for that. As I type this, left arm/left leg are tingling.

If it helps you any I've had 2 clear brain MRI's. So take it for what its worth

Its probably nothing more than maybe a pinched nerve and anxiety, but you have allowed your fears to grab hold of you. Don't worry it happens to all of us thats why we are here. If the MRI comes back clear are you going to move on? The answer is probably not unfortunately the test will only reassure you for a short time period unless you take hold of your anxiety and stop letting it dictate your life. I know it is easier said than done. Please trust whatever your doctor tells you DO NOT let any doubt come back. If your doctor isn't worried about it then neither should you. A doctor in the cardiologist told me "Don't worry until I tell you to worry". I have been trying to live by these words

I'm sure all will be fine in the end :yes:

I hope so Sixpack. Its been going on non-stop for about 9 days. So far, they ruled out a stroke(Had a CT Scan) and xrays. Also my thyroid tests came back fine. Im experiencing NON STOP tingling on only my left thumb, and my left arm gets tingly and weak feeling. My left leg is tingly too, almost like its vibrating. Its ALL on my left side and its starting to scare me. MS is my current fear

I do suffer from health anxiety. I have also been stressed out with my new military assignment, so I definitely know its playing a role. Ive had full blown panic attacks before and bad anxiety, but this feels different this time around. My left thumb is constantly numb feeling and tingly. a few days ago, I had this extreme pain go down my left arm and my left leg almost felt like jello and tingly. It I get the MRI and everything is clear, I will be satisfied, because I know that can check the nerves, disks ect. My Doctor told me she wants to make sure its not spinal stenosis, cause if it is, I would need surgery. So that kind of heightened my worry up as well

i used to do the MS fear tango.  I don't have it.

I have a friend whose left arm and left leg went completely numb on her.  docs thought it was MS.  It wasn't as it turned out. It was actually the physical manifestation of emotional distress from a miscarriage.
