Body Numbness

I will try to give you a quick run down of what has been happening... Feb 28, 2004 I had my ruptured appendix removed... Approx 3 days after I left the hospital my left arm went numb ( i could still use all my arm fully and feel everything it was tingly and numb)... That lasted approx 7 days... This then went away for about a week. I woke up one morning and once my feet hit the floor my left arm and left leg went numb... same type of feeling. I went to my family doctor and neurologist and both were stunned... had no idea. This lasted 10-12 days and went away.

July 11, 2004 i felt my foot going to sleep ... I was hitting it on the floor to prevent this but it still slowly was falling to sleep. It stayed like this all day and night -UNTIL- I woke up this morning.. From my chest down to my toes are numb... again I have full movement and strength just tingly numb feeling... also in my hands (only the palm side) , not my arms. I went to see my family doctor first thing this morning and again he says "He cannot explain this, nothing makes sense" He claims it is not serious but you can understand why i am concerned.. I don't think this type of stuff usually happens.

Note: My body is not 100% numb... It kinda feels like I have 20% feeling. I can feel virtually everything but it is a weird feeling. Like my torso is stiff. Like a pressure numb if that makes sense. This is the kind of numb I have been experiencing.
I went to go see the doctor again today July 15, 2004 and he said I should go see Psychologist.. Can this happen with Stress and Anxiety??? I do not think I am under great amounts of Stress

I was tested for Diabetes, B12, Thyroid, Doctor claims they were all normal....any suggestions?
Thank you.
Dean

I have been told that my problems are also stress and anxiety related. The numbness scares me so badly that it seems almost like a viscous circle!!! I get upset about the numbness so I freak out thinking I have a big problem like MS, a tumor or who knows.

Re: Body Numbness

stress and anxiety can cause numbness or pins and needles or tingling but usually at the body extremeties, hands, feet and head
I suspect some after effect from the anasthetic

type numbness and anasthetic into a search engine or see an anasthetic expert

Re: Body Numbness

I too have pins and needles in my fingers, toes, and arms. It's a *****ly sensation. I have extreme anxiety and have for a few years, but this symptom is new. It's SOOOO anoying, and whenever I have it I go into a complete anxiety attack because I think I have MS. I really really do think I have MS. The thought is consuming my everyday life.

Anyone relate?

Re: Body Numbness

I would see a chiropractor for this. They can help alot with numbness in the limbs.
Just be sure to go to a well recommended one.
