tingling...

Hi there- fellow neuro people!
I just wondered if anyone out there lives with tingling feet/hands and how they deal with it?
I have recently noticed when out walking the dog that the hand that is swinging when i walk starts tingling- what does this mean? how can movement cause tingling?
When i go to bed at night-ie- lie down my tingling stops after 5-10 mins- i don't understand that either.
I am having a scan in a few months- am sure it is going to reveal many many lesions...don't know what else to think. Normal blood tests but no special ones done- i do wonder about adrenal function ( have very bad anxiety since a child) but no-one else (docs) seems interested.
thanks for reading!

Re: tingling...

HI Mary! I wouldn't jump to conclusions or think the worst with your tingling hands and feet. It's great that you are going to be seen by your doctor. I am seeing a neurologist to for twitching and tingling. You could easily have pinched nerves, carpal tunnell syndrome or a number of different things that aren't that serious. Try not to worry. Let us know how things go.

Re: tingling...

Hi Mary63, I have tingling standing, sitting and lying through sides of my body from feet to shoulder. Also burning, numbness with my feet and halfway up my legs. After every test imaginable, the final one was a skin biopsy which showed a dead nerve ending and that makes me Positive for Peripheral Neuropathy. I am not diebetic and the diagnosis is Idiopathic Neuropathy. Have tried all medications which did not stop the pain and am now taking 200mgs of lyrica a day. However this is not working and have been told by my neurologist that there is no cure for PN. I am taking 5mgs endocet {generic for percocet} when I cannot tolerate the pain. I have accepted this ailment and grieve for all of the millions of others who are suffering with PN. Have you had your scans? Please let us know how you are feeling and God bless.
