Is your right side worse?

Hi

I was wondering if anyone has pain/stiffness/tingles on one side more than the other? I get the shooting pain on my left side sometimes but it's always been way worse on my right and it is extra stiff and lightly tingles. I've had anxiety since I was a little kid so of course that makes it so much more worse thinking it's something else. I woke up the other night cause I could feel my right foot jerking and restless. It feels weaker almost and sometimes colder.

Re: Is your right side worse?

I have it on both side, but my right side is worse because I use that side to pick up my daughter. That side is stronger, so I use it more and it hurts more.

Re: Is your right side worse?

Definitely my pain is asymmetric. I'm right handed, so usually right side is worse, but when I injured my right foot, you bet my left hip ached!

I think the "sidedness" of the pain just depends on what you do with your body, how you sit and move, etc.

Re: Is your right side worse?

YES!!! My right side is definitely worse, I can't even sleep on my right side. Right leg, hip and arm kill me. The only part of my body that does NOT hurt is my left arm. Unfortunately I also have essential tremors and that effects my left arm worse than my right soooo I'm a mess all around.

I too have it worse on my right side. My right hip kills me most of the time, after sitting for a period of time I get up and proceed to walk like I'm 85 and I'm only 41! No one understands this and I can't make them understand. Just know your not alone.

Cool Re: Is your right side worse?

Sorry, I just found your post. Yes, my right side is worse. I have more nerve pain on my right side. My right hip bothers me more and the tremors of my head are worse on my right side. Weird...isn't it.

Wow, it is amazing that other people as well are going thru the same thing. My right side is now a mess as I limp due to tingleness in my feet and both hands are swollen especially my right hand and now arm is almost useless right side.
I wonder if there is a reason for this as well.
