Re: Feet and Hands feel numb but arent
it sounds as though you are having reoccuring episodes of some sort of sensory nerve affectation.You don't always 'lose" full sensation,it kind of feels like it is way underneath the skin in some way but yet you feel full sensation on top???Am i describing it correctly?i have this in many different ares of my body due to extensive and varying types of spinal cord damage to nerves and tracts within the cord.What you are describing,combined with the chest pain could be an indication of something going on either within the cord itself or within the vertebrae(much more likely actually).i would see your doc for a referral to a good neurologist or neurosurgeon for a full neuro eval.Your primary can also okay an MRI for you before even sending you out to see if there IS indeed something obviously there.even starting with an x ray would tell you if there are any large bone spurs or even herniated discs present.i would definitely talk to your doc about this.You definitely have SOMETHING that is affecting a sensory nerve in order to be feeling the sensations you currently have.please keep me posted.Marcia
