I sure hope you do talk to the doctor soon. It could be seizures, but I am sure there are other things that need ruling out also...

Do you take any medicine? Often pins and needles in both arms have different causes than in one arm...

Hang in there. Hope you find answers soon

Hey,
I think it could be seizures but make sure when you go to your doctor you tell him/ her everything...tell him you think it might be seizures too...but could be something else...who knows

Re: Are these partial seizures Please??

They are called Petty Mal seizures. (I think that's how it's spelled) I have them. I have at least one a day sometimes one every two days. I just recently started having these again. I am 26 and that seizures when I was younger, its been about 12 years. I have only had three Grand Mal seizures. So I know exactly how you feel, I just had an MRI last night with and without contrast. Are you taking any meds? How old are you and how long has this been going on?
